composting rabbit manure

Rabbit manure is a highly efficient organic fertilizer. Its nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium contents are significantly higher than those of other animal feces and urine. Its nitrogen content is 1.53 times that of chicken manure, and its phosphorus content is 2.88 times that of chicken manure. Rabbit manure is used as base fertilizer, which has high fertilizer efficiency, long fertility and significant yield increase. It is especially suitable for watermelon, pumpkin, eggplant, fruit trees, etc. Practice shows that rabbit manure also has an insect repellent effect and has a certain effect on reducing the harm of armyworms and wheat straw flies. Rabbit manure liquid applied to the roots of tomatoes and cabbage can reduce the harm of cutworms and prevent cotton pests such as red spiders.

Unlike some chemical fertilizers, rabbit manure fertilizer is environmentally friendly and sustainable. It improves soil structure, enhances water retention, promotes microbial activity in the soil, makes plants healthier and has higher yields. In addition, because rabbit manure is naturally dry and odorless, it is easy to handle and can be applied directly to the garden without producing unpleasant odors.


What are The Benefits of Rabbit Manure?

  1. High in nutrients: Rabbit manure is rich in essential nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. Rabbit manure is four times more nutritious than cow or horse manure. It is twice as nutritious as chicken manure.

  2. Beneficial microorganisms: It contains beneficial microorganisms that enhance soil health and promote nutrient cycling.

  3. Improves soil structure: Rabbit manure adds organic matter to the soil, improving soil structure, aeration, and water retention.

  4. Low odor and safe: Unlike some other fertilizers, rabbit manure has a relatively low odor and will not burn plants, making it safe to use directly.

  5. Compostable: Rabbit manure composts well with other organic materials to form a balanced, nutrient-rich compost that further benefits the soil and plants.

Rabbit Manure Compost

Rabbit manure fertilizer is a very beneficial organic material that is environmentally friendly and sustainable, unlike some chemical fertilizers. Using rabbit manure fertilizer can improve soil structure, enhance water retention, and promote microbial activity in the soil, resulting in healthier plants and higher yields. We offer two ways to process rabbit manure:

The first option——compost rabbit waste

Two types of high-efficiency composting equipment: Organic Fertilizer Fermentation Tank and Compost Turner

  • Collecting Materials: Gather fresh rabbit manure along with other organic materials like straw, hay, grass clippings, and leftover plant materials. These additional materials help balance the carbon-to-nitrogen ratio in the compost, which is essential for microbial activity and nutrient distribution.
  • Mixing: Combine rabbit manure with the organic materials collected. Ensure a proper carbon-to-nitrogen ratio, ideally between 25:1 to 30:1, by thoroughly mixing the ingredients. This step helps in even nutrient distribution and prevents excessive dryness or moisture in the compost.
  • Humidity Management: Maintain the humidity of the compost material at around 50% to 60%. If the compost is too dry, add water; if it’s too wet, incorporate dry materials like straw or sawdust. Proper humidity supports microbial growth and the composting process.
  • Ventilation: Ensure good ventilation by regularly turning the compost pile. This action introduces oxygen, crucial for aerobic decomposition and odor reduction. Adequate ventilation prevents anaerobic conditions that can lead to foul odors and slow composting.
  • Temperature Regulation: Initially, microbial activity will increase the compost pile’s temperature. High temperatures (around 130-160°F or 55-70°C) help in killing pathogens, weed seeds, and accelerating decomposition. As composting progresses, temperatures will naturally decrease.

Organic Fertilizer Fermentation Tank:

  • Output: 3~4.5 m³/day
  • Power Supply: 380V50Hz
  • Treatment capacity: 7~10 m³/day

  1. The process of composting rabbit manure begins with collecting rabbit manure and other organic materials (such as straw, leaves and kitchen waste), which are mixed to balance the carbon-nitrogen ratio.
  2. Rabbit manure and other organic waste can be piled into strips or piles, and then regularly turned and ventilated using a compost turner to introduce oxygen and promote the activity of aerobic microorganisms.
  3. Alternatively, the mixture can be loaded into an organic fertilizer fermenter, where the built-in ventilation system and temperature control system will accelerate the decomposition process within a few weeks.
  4. Throughout the process, the temperature and humidity of the compost are monitored and adjusted to maintain optimal levels to ensure efficient decomposition and sterilization. After about 7 days, the compost material will be decomposed into nutrient-rich rabbit manure organic fertilizer.

Compost Turner:

  • Power:75~143kw
  • Capacity: 500~1800m³/h
  • Working Speed 6-10m/min

The second option——Rabbit manure organic fertilizer production line

In addition to composting rabbit manure directly, the fermented rabbit manure can also be further processed, such as made into pellets, packaged and sold. Through the pelleting process, rabbit manure can be more easily stored, transported and applied to farmland. The process of rabbit manure pelleting usually involves grinding and mixing the fermented rabbit manure, and then using a pelletizer to compress it into pellets. The size and shape of the pellets can be relatively uniform, making it easier for farmers to fertilize as needed. Packaged rabbit manure pellets have a longer shelf life and are easier to store and sell.

The processing of powdered rabbit manure organic fertilizer includes several important steps:

organic fertilizer production line case

First, collect fresh rabbit manure and mix it with other organic materials such as straw, hay and kitchen waste to achieve the best carbon-nitrogen ratio. This step is the key to preparing organic fertilizer raw materials.

Then, put the mixture into an organic fertilizer fermentation tank or composting area for fermentation. During fermentation, proper humidity and ventilation need to be maintained to promote microbial activity and accelerate decomposition to form high-quality compost.

The fully fermented compost needs to be dried to reduce moisture content and improve its quality and shelf life. This step is usually carried out using an rotary drum dryer to ensure that the compost is dried evenly.

The dried compost is crushed by an dust-free cage crusher to process it into a fine powdery substance. This Crusher is suitable for processing organic materials with high moisture content. It has the advantages of excellent crushing effect and no dust flying, making it suitable for use in organic fertilizer production. Then a rotary drum screener is used to remove impurities to ensure the purity and uniformity of the powder.

Finally, the sieved rabbit manure powder is packaged by an automatic packaging machine for easy storage and sale. Such packaging can maintain the quality and dryness of the powder and extend its shelf life.

Granular rabbit waste organic fertilizer processing

Another form is to make rabbit manure organic fertilizer into granules and package them for sale. The production line includes multiple steps and organic fertilizer equipment, such as disc granulator, rotary sieving machine, fertilizer coating machine, etc. The following are the detailed production steps of rabbit manure granule organic fertilizer:

Disc Granulator:

  • Capacity(t/h): 1~20
  • Application:Livestock manure; Food waste; Mushroom residue; Municipal sludge; Crop straw

  1. After drying, the rabbit manure is recommended to be processed into granules using a disc granulator. This type of granulator is easy to operate and can produce uniform-sized granules, making it suitable for large-scale production.
  2. The granular organic fertilizer is screened through a rotary drum screener to remove particles and impurities that do not meet the specifications, ensuring the uniformity and quality of the granules.
  3. The screened granular organic fertilizer is packaged using a fertilizer packaging machine, typically in moisture-proof bags or sacks, for storage and sale.
