Are you getting the most out of your manure?

Knowing what is in it and using it where it will give the most benefit are
keys to maximizing your manure’s value


If livestock are part of your farming operation, their manure is something you will need to deal with. For some, manure is no more than a byproduct that is expensive and time-consuming to get rid of. Properly managed, however, manure can be a valuable source of nutrients for the crops on your farm. The difference is due primarily to your attitude, but also to the supply of manure relative to the needs of your crops.
