I am in the process of constructing a small Shed for 1 buffalo and 2 cows. It will be a 20x10 area which is 2ft elevated from the ground. I need help designing floor so that Urine and Dung are collected in nearby tanks (may be 10ft) so that smell can be minimized. I have been looking for pictures but so far I could not find any.
Just curious…what is the use of the trap and sludge pump? My design is pretty simpler…I allow the urine to collect directly in the tank…i.e no trap and sludge pump. We do surface level/flood irrigation in our farm and I have the labor pour couple of buckets of urine to the water channel (ie it gets mixed and goes to the field)…
The request was for odur free design. Without gully trap this cannot be achived. Gully trap will have water alway in it. it prevents odur,insects coming back from the pit.
Need for sludge pump:
When we wash barn dung also flows in the gutter and trap and to tank. An ordinary pump cannot handle dung accumulated in tank.
