I found this book to be extremely well written and quite humorous in addition to covering everything you’d want to know about how to manage and use manure. With more home gardeners raising chickens and the popularity of small farms growing, this helpful and entertaining guide will be useful to many–including those who use locally sourced manure to add to their garden compost.
Logsdon’s technique of working further reading material into the text takes away guesswork for the reader who wants to learn more and makes a reference page unnecessary. The breadth of experience relayed here is undeniable, which makes even the chapter on how to use which type of fork for which type of bedding/manure engaging. His coverage of biosolids is intriguing and reminds us that the type of manure that is most problematic on our planet is our own.
