Manure Management?

I was looking for an alternative to storing my horse manure as I'm getting tired of looking at the unsightly piles in my field. Does anyone have any suggestions? I have heard a bit about this aerated composting thing and was wondering if anyone knows anything about it. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

I can't really help you with composting. I started looking into in my area, but we have lots of high winds and it didn't sound like a very good idea... I just fork it into the trash dumpster, and the trash company takes it away. Good luck!

In England people swarm to collect manure and take it away, they love growing vegetables etc...in it and most will pay a fee. Although you probably already knew that, silly me.

I was looking into composting it so as to maybe get a little more buck for my manure and that's how I came across this aerated stuff. Just by keeping a blower attached to your pile you can apparantly speed up the process. I just filled out the application for more info on this guy's website to find out more about it and get an estimate of how much it costs and what they think the turnaround will be. Just crossing my fingers hoping I'm onto something here

Do you have a large field to spread it over?
