Dairy Q&A


How do you use the  cow manure produced on your farm?

We recycle the cow manure  and use it as fertilizer for crops.
Manure ( nutrient) is also useful in water conservation because it increases the water-holding capacity of soil by 20 percent, resulting in reduced ground water needed to grow crops.

We are permitted by the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality to  store manure for use on our farm.
We follow a nutrient management plan specially designed  for our farm that  guides the amount,source, placement and timing of manure on fields.

  1. Cow manure is absolutely good for crop and any other green production. And very necessary for organic farming. It's one of the main advantages of dairy cow farming along with milk production. Thanks for the Q&A!
