This report is a story of a village where people evaded pollution by rearing many cattle --- stink or muddiness of water. Excrement of cattle is a nuisance, but it is a fertilizer. However, it remains a nuisance without composting the excrement. The number of cattle is more than number of Kiyomi Village inhabitants. Therefore, each farmer could not individually compost much excrement, which their cattle evacuated every day. Farmers keeping cattle constructed cooperatively a compost plant, costing 140 million yen, and it was possible to compost all excrement that their cattle excreted. The compost amounting to 5,500 tons has been supplied to horticultural farmers at the price of about a thousand yen per ton. The compost plant fulfilled a function that assisted the horticultural farmer to supply compost at a cheap price. The reason they could supply it at a cheap price is selling the compost to civil engineering enterprise as grass fertilizer for embankment conservation at higher priceShow more [+] Less [-]
