Beef Facility
Determining the proper digester for a beef facility depends on such factors as climate
conditions, manure collection and total solids content.

Beef manure collected from a dirt drylot presents challenges to a digester due to rocks,
sticks, and other inorganics.  Beef manure collected from cement floored barns with minimal
contamination is readily digestible.  If the solids content (weight of manure without water) is
11–13%, a Plug Flow Digester may be used.  If the solids content is below 11% a Complete Mix
Digester
may be the best choice.
