Successful Manure & Waste Management

May 1 / Day 1
We are excited to announce the first O2Compost Paragon System broke ground on Saturday, May 1, following two years of discussions and a full year of design and planning. The Paragon (ideal) Compost System is a combined effort between O2Compost and Barn Pros, the preeminent wood barn kit company in the Pacific Northwest. Our client, Roger Portman, is escstatic that he will finally have a simple and elegant solution to his manure management challenges.
The Paragon Compost System is a building kit that incorporates the O2Compost aeration system into a pre-engineered structure that is delivered to your farm, ready to assemble. The kit includes precut lumber, trusses, siding, preassembled gates, hardware, a full set of detailed instructions, and free technical support. The cost of shipping is more than compensated for by: 1) eliminating waste building materials; and 2) greatly expediting the construction process.
This Paragon Blog will take you through each step of the construction process, and will take the mystery out of setting up an aerated composting system. It will continue to follow construction with a detailed account of system start-up – filling the bins, initiating aeration, processing monitoring, evaluating product quality, and ending with selling the finished compost to home gardeners in the community.
We will include a detailed account of the costs associated with construction and evaluate the return on investment for the project. With updates at least twice weekly, you can follow along in real time and see for yourself that aerated composting is a viable option to the “pile of manure out behind the barn”.
As we strive to promote sustainable agriculture throughout the world, I want to thank you for joining us in this adventure. Please be sure to invite your friends and fellow horse owners to subscribe to our blog as it will take all of us to change our “manure ethic” and make a positive difference for the world we live in.
