Featured below is a cost benefit analysis of using the Brockwood Stall Shi*fter, the leading automatic manure and bedding sifter, as compared to cleaning a stall with a standard manure fork. The table below shows the daily cost of stall cleaning using the manual method of manure removal and the automatic stall cleaning method with a manure and bedding sifter.
Over 10 years of customer responses show that on average it takes about 15 minutes for an experienced stall cleaner to sufficiently hand pick a 10 x 12 stall bedded about 3 inches deep with saw chips or medium to small shavings. It also takes about 1/2 bale of shavings to replenish the urine soaked shavings and the shavings that get thrown out with the manure.
An automatic manure and bedding sifter greatly reduces the time required to clean the stall as well as the amount of bedding needed to replenish that which was thrown away in the process. Our automatic manure and bedding sifter can reduce the cost of cleaning a stall by $2.50 per day as shown below. Savings are based on labor cost of $7.50/hour and bedding cost of $5.00/bale Times to clean and bedding usage based on customer responses .
