Ridding your pasture of manure is important for the health of your livestock, but it can also present other benefits.
Besides deterring flies and other livestock pests from inhabiting your pasture, cleaning manure can make you some extra money.
Organic farmers use manure to fertilize their crops, and they pay good money for it too.
In the past, shovels and tow-behind wagons were the best way to clean the mess. You can imagine how dreadful that was.
