Invitation: VGT campaign for the Hubmann pig farm – manure or humus?

2023-12-12 11:05:16

Manure and humus are presented: with fully slatted floors, smelly manure is created from which methane escapes, and with straw mats in the field, humus is created that binds CO2

Vienna (OTS)

If: Wednesday, December 13, 2023, 10:30 a.m
Wo: 3100 St. Pölten, in the pedestrian zone opposite the main train station
Was: Original manure from a fully slatted pig farm is presented in buckets and placed opposite a wheelbarrow with original humus soil from the Hubmann pig farm on a straw mat in the field

Anyone who passes the large pig factories with fully slatted floors will have noticed the slurry tanks just by the smell. Inside is a lake of a smelly mixture of pig feces and pig urine, unbound. Methane, a potent greenhouse gas, constantly escapes from this. Ultimately, this brew is spread on the fields, to the chagrin of the residents. Quite different is the stool and urine of the pigs in the Hubmann farm, which is to be cleared by the authorities due to the threat of environmental damage. There the feces are immediately bound in the deep straw bedding and separated from the urine. The fungal cultures immediately begin to decompose. 6 weeks after the end of the fattening period, the pig excrement has already turned into a fragrant, black humus soil that even binds greenhouse gases.

With this campaign, the VGT wants to show the public the huge difference in the “end result” of these two forms of husbandry – and thus how absurd the approach of the St. Pölten BH is to allow full slatted operation with its environmental damage, but that Hubmann operation with its environmental impact.
