ALBERTA - Be it cow, chicken, horse or pig, waste management in the farming and agriculture community has always presented a challenge. Three major integrated manure management systems are paving the way for waste management in Western Canada by turning manure into usable by-products, such as methane, biogas and thermal energy. We have never looked at manure as an opportunity, Gordon Wells of Tradex AgriSystems said at the 2005 Banff Pork Seminar. One of the key messages that must be received is that manure has renewed value in today's marketplace. Increasing urban pressure on water and land, and dramatically higher energy costs have created a real challenge for livestock producers, but those same conditions have created a renewed interest in this new technology, said Wells.
