Recently an end user whose machine came from Show Me Shortline won a contest for highest corn yield in his area. Billy Tripp, in Griffithville, Arkansas, has a Nitro 950 Tubeline manure spreader he used to spread chicken litter on his fields for fertilizer. This gave him a yield of 343 bushels per acre of corn, winning him the Arkansas Irrigated Division corn yield contest.
Lets talk about why chicken litter could be useful on your farm, and then discuss the Tubeline Nitro Manure spreader and its benefits.
Chicken litter, if used correctly, can be beneficial as a natural fertilizer. It can return needed nutrients back into the ground, such as calcium, sulfur, potassium and magnesium, thus increasing yields. Chicken litter can also help balance soil ph and to reduce the acidity levels in the soil.
The best machine to spread manure or chicken litter is the Tubeline Nitro. The Nitro comes in several sizes, anywhere from smaller ғranch style machines to the largest model, a Nitro 950 which will carry a heaped capacity of 950 cubic feet. There are several features that put Tubeline Nitros above the competitors. Nitros chains are heavy-duty and are designed to move heavy manure day after day without chain breaks. As you can see from the picture above (Tubeline Nitros chains being the one in the upper left corner), the Nitros chains surpass what the competitors use on their spreaders. The beaters on the Nitro are also robust and dynamically balanced. The beaters are especially designed to ensure even and consistent spread, which is what you need if you are going to achieve higher yields through fertilizer with natural chicken litter. The beaters on the Nitro spreader are also quick drop removable, so you can turn your spreader into a rear discharge trailer for stockpiling or windrowing. There is an optional poultry litter beater assembly option on the Nitro spreaders that will help you more effectively spread chicken litter.
