This fact sheet outlines a method that uses manure to fertilize crops. The fact sheet is aimed at those small-scale livestock farmers who raise more than one type of animal and haul their manure on a daily or weekly basis because long-term storage is not available. This manure management system is based on the “book values ” of manure rather than on manure tests. Manure testing is not necessary, and manure spreader calibration is not needed. However, soil testing is suggested. Photos courtesy of USDA NRCS. *Now available online at <www.lpes.org>.L P E S Small Farms Fact Sheets Nutrient Management—SIMPLIFIE
