Manure can be a valuable fertilizer if you store and use it correctly on your farm. But just how valuable? A recent University of Kentucky research project studied 10 cattle in a confined area for 200 days.
In that time period, the animals created an estimated 62 tons of manure. When compared to fertilizer prices the nutrient value of the manure was worth more than $2,100.
So maybe it’s better to focus on the value rather than seeing manure management as a time-consuming hassle.
