If you have livestock, you’ve probably dealt or are dealing with mud and manure in the areas they use the most. This can not only create an unhealthy environment for your animals, but for the environment too. Mud that is enriched by manure can harm aquatic life if it gets into surface water. This is not just a concern for those who live near water bodies since the nutrients and sediments can leach into groundwater too. This can be a really big problem if you draw from a well. The District has helped landowners convert what was once a muddy mess into a healthy home for animals and the environment. Creating hardened, yet pervious surfaces (such as HoofGrid) for heavy use areas, like paddocks, allows the landowner to easily and regularly remove manure, while giving animals a sturdy, dry place to be year round.
