Is Manure a Benefit or a Burden To You?

August 31, 2013

The main benefit of manure is that it contains nutrients, such as nitrogen, potassium, sulfur and phosphorus.  Do you realize that most of the nutrients the animal eats will end up in its manure? The type of manure whether poultry, horse, or beef, and how it is handled, with or without bedding, dictates the amount of nutrients.

Much of the inorganic nutrients in manure are the same as what you find in commercial fertilizer, and it dissolves into the plants immediately.  The organic nutrients are slow releasing and as they deteriorate the plant will absorb them.  It is the organic material that is very beneficial to the soil as it is less likely to erode and assists with the absorption of the rain.

Maybe it seems like a burden because you cannot use all the manure that you produce?  Have you given any thought to giving away or even better yet, selling your extra manure? Maybe the burden is that you don’t have the best manure spreader for your needs?
