Really can’t think what delivery of basic farm supplies could make me happier than today’s six truckloads of well-aged cow manure. Since we don’t have an on-farm source, getting this from a farm less than a mile (1.6km) down the road, loaded to order and delivered by the farmer himself, is a pretty good Plan B. This has been stacked for average around a year, so the composting action is well underway. I’ll be rearranging it into large windrows with the compact Kubota, for further breakdown till spring, and spreading some now. Heart-warming! :)

Only gardeners get excited over poop! lol!!! Looks like you have quite a bit there.
Oooh, I have compost envy! I’d love to be able to get my hands (or at least shovel) on that much manure!
I’m happy for you acquiring such a valuable resource for growing. Last year I experimented, growing half of my potatoes with manure and half without to see the results. Well, I had substantially greater yields from the manure planted spuds by far – it really is amazing stuff!
Good luck with it all.
Now if they could do this for city gardeners and all the urban community gardens, that would be fantastic!
Blimey – that’s a lot of manure! I wouldn’t fancy having to shovel that lot :)
wow thats a lot of crap! Like stated prior, only organic farmers can get excited over that much manure!
And that’s only one of SIX LOADS! :)
yikes… 6 truck loads of 1 year old Compost will make it look like gold for you…seems to be a happy farming year ahead….
A pile of gold… “Holy Shit” could be another alternative…
How do I get some? I’m planning on sending it to the Westboro Baptist Church.
Interested in different contacts and exchange of this commodity.
