If a lagoon is not in use and there is minimal water available to pump then excavation is the answer. The top water is pumped off into another lagoon and then a long reach hoe or excavator is used to remove the solids.
These solids are dumped into large 25 yard manure spreaders or side slinger wagons. These are driven to the field and spread on top of the field. A farmer would have to come back a week or so later and disc, chisel, till or plow the manure into the land.
In many instances a front end loader or skid steer with a squeegee is run in the pit to push the solids toward the excavator. Excavating is the most expensive method of solid removal from a lagoon.
