Raw cattle slurry can have up to 60+ units of nutrients / 1000 gallons (3785 Liter) if the total of nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, sulphur and magnesium are added up. However, these values depend on the animal feed, livestock housing or bedding and manure handling.
Not all the nutrients are immediately available. Manure contains nutrients in its organic and inorganic form. Plants can only use the inorganic nutrients right away. The organic nutrients are transformed by microbes into the inorganic form which only then becomes plant available. This process can however take several years.
Microorganisms present in the sediment transform the organic nitrogen (ammonium) into ammonia. Ammonia gets lost at high rates due to volatilization because of the anaerobic process when liquid manure is stored. These losses are more important in some storage forms like open feedlots compared to pits under slatted floors and bottom-loaded manure storage systems.
By agitating the liquid manure regularly, a more homogeneous manure can be obtained. However, this is often linked to costs in terms of equipment, maintenance and manpower. Penergetic g stimulates the aerobic conversion process (rotting state) which assists in breaking down floating layers and sedimentations.
Using manure as fertilizer for crops is a certain way of recycling. By using the slurry produced by cattle and letting aerobic bacteria convert it into nitrate (nitrification), the slurry may be used as valuable fertilizer. The nitrates serve as food to the plants, for example, silage corn, which can again be refed to the cattle.
Penergetic g activates microorganisms and therefore supports the aerobic process leading to better nitrification as well as the reduction of crust and sludge. Furthermore, by stimulating the aerobic process penergetic g prevents the slurry from being overrun by anaerobic bacteria which are responsible for the creation of unwanted gases such as ammonia, nitrogen , hydrogen sulfide, nitrous oxide and methane. This can be noticed by the reduction of unpleasant odors.
In primary anaerobic ponds, sediments or sludge form on the bottom of the pond, whilst the liquid parts remain on top. Minerals (which easily bind to the particles of the sediment) sink to the bottom and are therefore found in higher quantity in the sludge.
This difference in nutritional value is important as to the nutritional content and even distribution of nutrients when spreading the liquid manure. If the slurry pit is not fully emptied from time to time or properly agitated, the liquid manure is regularly pumped out whilst the sludge and contained phosphorus and potassium remain on the bottom.

Soil biology and the interactions that occur in the soil ecosystem are fundamental to provide a favorable environment for plant development. Treating the liquid manure with penergetic g increases the number of good bacteria and fungi, which are key to valuable soil health. By feeding the soil with these beneficial bacteria and fungi, penergetic treated slurry and manure improve soil microbe activity, organic matter content, cation exchange capacity, soil structure and its ability to hold water.
The bulk of the expense on many farms is for storage and labor associated with pumping and agitating the slurry or liquid manure, as well as equipment maintenance and the actual spreading of the slurry. The opportunity cost is provided by the costs for commercial chemical or organic fertilizer. The amount of fertilizer applied varies depending on the soil characteristics, nutrient content, crop cultivated, farming practices and regulations. For example, in the EU the Nitrates directive limits the amount of livestock manure in vulnerable zones to 170 kg N / ha and year.
Sometimes the crusts or sludge in manure pits get as heavy as they get congested with grass/weeds growing out of the surface crust.
Heavy crusts and sludge in the lagoons or pits make it difficult to pump lagoon water or liquid manure. Manure pits in dairy barns are often problematic to be pumped out completely minimizing storage capacity due to remaining material after emptying the pits.
Penergetic g helps to break down crusts and sludge and therefore, the handling of manure becomes easier as the liquid manure becomes more homogenous and flowable. This not only reduces the time for manure handling but also decreases the wear and tear of the pumping equipment.
Prior to the treatment with penergetic g, there was a heavy crust on the lagoon surface.
4 weeks after the initial treatment, there was evidence of the crust breaking down, the manure was bubbling. Additional 1 kg of penergetic g was applied in alleys per week.
After seven weeks of treatment, the former crust largely dissolved.
The following week the lagoon was partially pumped out. The operator said that the manure required minimal agitation and was much easier to pump.

Penergetic g promotes aerobic bacteria and the homogeneity of the slurry or liquid manure, which makes it more flowable and easier to handle. Floating layers, sludge and clogged solid parts have been noticeably reduced, thus considerably shortening the stirring time and lowering the cost typically associated with the extra work for cleaning out build-ups. An added bonus when using penergetic g can be a reduction in fly infestations caused by the reduction of crusting. Furthermore, odors are reduced to a natural level, also resulting in an improved barn climate.
The activation of existing microorganisms promotes aerobic degradation, which leads to a reduction in odour emissions.
Different products for different applications for an optimal result.
Functioning microorganisms break down layers and a flowable homogeneous fertilizer is produced.
Due to homogeneity, the stirring effort is reduced, which saves time and costs.

The science of the Penergetic Technology uses the existing knowledge saying that each atom, each molecule, each compound and each substance has its own energy measured by electromagnetic frequencies. The natural biotechnology uses these effects to stimulate different biological cycles.
