Podcast: Matthew Schutte: Pit foaming: what is it, and how can we control it?


All facets of a swine facility need some form of maintenance from time to time – that includes the pit underneath the pigs. Certain conditions in the pit can cause the manure to foam up, which may lead to both safety and logistical issues. In today’s episode, I talk with Matthew Schutte about pit foaming and what we need to do to ensure it doesn’t occur in our barns.

“Make sure to take measurements in your pit. It is a lot easier to deal with foam early on rather than later.” – Matthew Schutte
