Composting Manure

Will the dry barnyard manure, when heaped up and dampened with water,

make a valuable fertilizer?

For garden use, dry manure in heaps should be dampened with water from

time to time so as to prevent too active fermentation. Of course, water

should not be supplied so freely as to cause a leaching of the pile. It

is also desirable that the material should be forked over from time to

time to distribute moisture and promote decay. When this is done a

thoroughly first-class fertilizer is produced.
