Analysis Of Manure








As has been stated, the content of the manure must
depend chiefly upon the character of the feed. We are accustomed to
combine feeding stuffs in differing proportions for horses, cows, pigs,
and sheep. Van Slyke names the following approximate percentages of
plant-food constituents in fresh excrements of farm animals, the solid
and liquid being mixed:

+----------+----------+------------+----------+
Animal Per Cent Per Cent Per Cent
Nitrogen Phosphoric Potash
Acid
+----------+----------+------------+----------+
Horse 0.70 0.25 0.55
Cow 0.60 0.15 0.45
Pig 0.50 0.35 0.40
Sheep 0.95 0.35 1.00
Hen 1.00 0.80 0.40
+----------+----------+------------+----------+

He estimates that one ton of average mixed stable manure, inclusive of
absorbents, contains approximately 10 pounds of nitrogen, 5 pounds of
phosphoric acid, and 10 pounds of potash.
