  • Harner, Joseph P.; Murphy, James P. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1997)
    Flushing systems that collect and transport manure are utilized in dairy operations. The sanitation attainable and reduced labor requirements can make flushing a desirable option. Designed flush systems utilize a flush ...
  • Harner, Joseph P.; Strahm, T.D.; Murphy, James P. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    Sand can be handled successfully either in a scrape or flush system by developing handling systems that allow for the sand-laden manure to settle prior to the effluent entering a lagoon. The abrasiveness and density ...
  • Strahm, T.; Harner, Joseph P.; Murphy, James P.; McCormack, G.; Smith, J.F.; Key, David V. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2001)
    Sixty four percent of the fields (14 of 22) in northeast and south central Kansas would be able to apply dairy manure on a nitrogen basis if the current swine manure application regulations were adopted. Due to high ...
  • Harner, Joseph P.; Strahm, T.; Key, David V.; Strahm, T. L. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Time requirements for loading a manure spreader and traveling to and from the field varied from 20 to 30 min per load. However, standardizing the data showed that 5 to 7 min were required per 1,000 gal (9,000 lb). ...
  • Strahm, T.D.; Harner, Joseph P.; Key, David V.; Murphy, James P. (Kansas State University. Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 2000)
    Nine primar,y lagoons and solids storage basins were sampled on Kansas dairies using flush systems. These samples were analyzed for nutrient content of wastewater and sand manure. The manure moisture content in ...
  • Harner, Joseph P.; Murphy, James P. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station, 1994)
    Kansas environmental regulations require dairy producers with more than 300 animal units (215 mature cows at 1,400 lb, or equivalent weight) to be able to store the manure scraped from freestalls, lots, alleys, and ...
  • Strahm, T.; Harner, Joseph P.; Key, David V.; Murphy, James P. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service, 1999)
    Nine concrete storage basins were sampled on Kansas dairies and analyzed for nutrient content of sand-laden dairy manure. The manure average 75% moisture content during the three sampling periods. The average total ...
  • Harner, Joseph P.; Murphy, James P.; Smith, J.F. (Kansas Agricultural Experiment Station and Cooperative Extension Service., 1998)
    Flushing characteristics of a tower tank valve flushing system with a 12-inch-diameter manual valve were determined. Data were obtained using the outside cow alleys in a fourrow freestall barn. The alleys were 12 ft ...
