Manure Stores

Manure stores usually have a concrete base that can take the weight of tractors and spreaders. This base has one, two or three walls. These walls are typically 2-3 metres high. Ways of building the walls include ready-made concrete panels, reinforced concrete, reinforced block work or good quality railway sleepers supported by suitable upright RSJ's. The height of the store is normally limited to 3 metres. The width of the store is typically 10 to 15 metres. Liquid waste is collected in a below ground tank.
