Why Invest In The McLanahan SMS12 System
McLanahan produces the most innovative and economical equipment and systems for recycling sand bedding. One of our strengths is that we can work with nearly any type of manure system. Now, with the addition of the SMS12 system, we can work with nearly any size dairy to design a system with a great ROI.
With the SMS12 system, McLanahan has developed the first mechanical sand separation system tailored specifically for dairies with fewer than 700 cows. In fact, the ROI on this system is so good that dairies with as few as 200 cows should consider installing the SMS12 system to recapture and reuse their sand bedding.
All McLanahan sand separation systems can achieve recovery rates of more than 90% if managed properly and washed concrete sand is used as bedding. This high-quality recovered sand can quickly be reused as bedding with minimal conditioning.
