The Paso Poop Story at RDP -- Composting Basics
STABLES: RPD has 10 stalls with adjoining 12’ X 22' private paddocks, plus an overflow foaling/quarantine pen. As horses are wont to do, they eat all day, and produce the raw materials for our compost all night.
HORSE FACILITIES: Grass turn out areas, carefully rotated and irrigated to maintain green grass year round. The horse are on the pastures several hours a day. In addition they get high quality hay, alfalfa, oat chaff, chia and flax seeds for their Omega 3s, and the underweight ones get a little bit of grain every morning and evening. These are the raw ingredients which become our compost.
COMPOSTING AREAS: Four large composting bins have been been built at the rancho. Each is covered and has permanent air tubes installed to ensure good air circulation throughout the pile of compost that is aging in the bin. The stacks are monitored for temperature and moisture level for 6-9 weeks, until the material is fully composted.
PROCESSING: RDP has recently purchased a professional grinding machine for our custom built Paso Poop processing system, to fully shred and grind the composted manure into consistent fertilizer / mulch / soil amendment product. In additional, we now have a professional weighing setup, to ensure that our big costal bags all fall within our standard 17 - 18 kilos per bag weight.
