Pork producer says hog manure improves bottom line and couldn’t come at a better time

A South-Central Nebraska farmer says he’s using hog manure to increase his profitability in the wake of skyrocketing input costs.  

Will Traudt says he started his custom hog operation in 2014 in an effort to lower his fertilizer costs. “Nothing fantastic or outstanding, but it was very, very solid. At that point and time, it reduced our commercial fertilizer purchases about 60 to 70 percent.  Now, you fast forward to the last 12 months, that has now tripled.”

He tells Brownfield yields have jumped 15 to 20 bushels-per-acre and there’s room for improvement.
