Compost

“They’ve been very enjoyable to work with.

 

The biggest win for us right now is a lot of work savings. It’s saved us much more work than we anticipated. (Our manure) is a much better product. The application rate is about 1/8 to 1/4 of what it was before. You get a drier product. It’s easier to handle. Easier on equipment. It’s just better all the way around.

 

Overall, I ran the farm with four less people in a year, which is tremendous.” – Eric Kasper, Farm Manager, Kasper Land & Cattle

Benefits of Compost Use
