Poultry Litter: an alternate and effective natural fertiliser
The commercial poultry industry is thriving in the UK, constituting a significant part of the agricultural sector. British poultry farmers produce around 160 million tonnes of poultry products each year, mostly meat and eggs.
This comes from a huge stock of birds that far outnumber the country’s human population:
- 94.2 million Commercial broiler (meat) chickens
- 0.8 million Commercial breeding chickens
- 3.9 million Egg laying chickens
- 2.1 million turkeys
The poultry sector produces an enormous amount of manure and litter each year, amounting to hundreds of millions of tonnes. Poultry litter itself is the mixture of bird manure, chicken feed, sawdust and bedding material that accumulates at the bottom of chicken sheds.
A key part of our contracting service is to regularly clean out sheds and remove poultry litter for commercial poultry farmers.
This gives us access to an almost limitless supply of high-quality poultry litter. When treated and partially fermented, this constitutes a potent natural fertiliser. We can supply our agricultural clients with poultry litter in high volumes, at a competitive price and in a form that can immediately be spread onto your fields.
