Value Of Fresh And Dry Manure

What is the relative value of the weekly or semi-weekly corral scrapings

which are tramped fine and air-dried; and of the fresh, wet manure from

the stable? I do not understand that the latter has appreciable water

added, and the amount of sand in the corral scrapings would be small.

Fresh, mixed animal manure is usually calculated to contain about 75 per

cent of water. Manure which has been quickly dried, without fermentation

and without leaching by rains, may be worth four or five times as much

per ton. Nothing, however, short of analysis would determine the value

of any particular lot, for that depends somewhat upon the way the

animals are fed, as well as upon the moisture content.
