If you're doing some gardening this spring planting season, check with your local dairy farmers for free cow manure. It's great fertilizer. Most farmers will allow you to come and take all you want. Till or plow it into your gardening soil well, when preparing your garden.

Folks when you are getting manure from farms or farm animals please remember don't just go throw it into the garden. Unless you want a lot of weeds to fight. You should compost it to kill the weeds. Horse manure is supposed to be composted for a least 4 to 6 months before putting into the garden. Dairies are prime places for manure and also for weeds of all kinds. Just compost it.
