Do you have any challenges with allocation of decay fees and do you, as many other farmers, like to optimize the conducting and economy regarding the inevitable stream of dead animals from your production of domestic animals?
Here, our agricultural consultant Lars Jørgen, undergo a series of general recommendations, which you can profitably use, if you want to reduce the amount of decomposition fees in your production.
1. Also register during the weekend
Remember to register your dead animals during the weekend. Even though the trucks do not pick up animals during the weekend, it is important to continue the registration continuously bboth on Saturday and Sunday. You hereby secure that we will collect on Monday.
It you register the "harvest" from the weekend on Mondays, it might not be collected until Tuesday, and there is hereby a greater probability for receiving decomposition fees of a significant amount.
2. Collection and registration as a part of your daily routines
We always recommend incorporating the collection and registration of dead animals into the daily work routines. It makes sense to most, so that it does not become a tiresome extra task, to move the animals from the stables to the collection space and then register afterwards.
It is of course individual, how it can be carried out in practice on each holding, but if it succeeds, it is an effective way to obvate the decomposition fees. However, most holdings benefit from focusing on the following:
4. A good collection space
An inexpedient arrangement of the collection space can become a breeding ground for a bad environment that increases decay. At the same time, it provides challenges with smell and can possibly lead to unnecessary decay fees. You can profitably follow our recommendations for a correct arrangement of the collection space:

5. The 24-hour rule
The fact that you must register your dead animals as fast as possible, and at least 24 hours after you ascertain the death of the animal, is important due to the above-mentioned reasons, but be aware that it is also put on the statute book.
