The one-step system of the present invention provides a highly sanitary, efficient, economical and humane method for raising pigs from birth to finished product. Farrowing and raising pigs in just one location helps to reduce virus and bacteria problems as compared with conventional methods and significantly reduces labor costs. As a result, the mature hog is healthier and also more profitable. By slowing composting fibrous material and manure on-site, the waste management system of the one-step system completely eliminates the need for offensive lagoons, and recycles the manure for end products useful in gardening and agricultural applications.
