What is a composting barn or "mootel"?

Composting barns or “Mootels” are like no other type of barn.

They are open structures that focus on cow comfort. In a composting barn, an aerobic system of ‘good bugs’ composts the effluent, keeping the bedding dry and your herd healthy.

They can be a great enhancement to animal welfare and there is minimal smell (very different to most barns). They can fit seamlessly into the dairy industry and in the process solve key environmental problems.
