Flawless functioning of manure removal systems depends on the execution of dung channels and their drainage. In order to maintain good claw health, dung channels should be rather dry and have good grip. Most often, high amounts of manure cause blockages, and loose housing has to be cleaned more often as a consequence. For efficient separation of liquid and solid wastes, gaps between slats have to correspond to the manure composition. In open air or cold housing systems, manure removal depends on the impact of frost. Suitable construction and running of manure removal systems under can guarantee functioning down to a temperature of -10oC
