As I was watching the hay mowing cutter go across the field yesterday,
I thought back to late last fall when Hattie and I were watching the
manure spreader go in a similar pattern spreading liquid cow manure.
From brown to green...a little dairy farm manure magic!
Cow manure is a nutrient used to fertilize fields that are
part of our dairy farm's nutrient management plan.
Utilizing our cows' manure is an important part of our farm's
sustainability because it adds organic material to the soil,
increases the water holding capacity of the land and
decreases the amount of commercial fertilizer that is purchased.
