to best spread manure evenly on your garden


Manure has long been recognized as a way to renew worn-out crop fields. The nitrogen and other nutrients in the manure are a natural, organic type of fertilizer that also improves the soil. Spreading manure is a messy, smelly chore and farm implements have been created to make the task easier. They come in a variety of sizes, but all essentially work the same way. Long, finger-like rods called beaters within a hopper break up the clumps of manure and force it out of a small space at the bottom of the hopper and onto the field.

Step One

Test that all the bolts and nuts on the spreader are secure and that the tires are inflated with the proper specs.

Step Two

Check the manure spreader to ensure it is working correctly. Lube the moving parts and run it for a few minutes to see if there are any problems.

Step Three

Attach the spreader to the tow vehicle draw bar.

Step Four

Fill the hopper with manure, starting from the front and working towards the back. Fill evenly until the hopper is full.

Step Five

Engage the beaters by moving their control to the proper position.

Step Six

Drive the hopper onto the field, and spread the manure until the load is finished.
