Manure Spreader

Rental


To help you implement one of the components of your farm's manure management program, the Pierce Conservation District has two manure spreaders available for rent to Pierce County residents. One is a Frontier 25-bushel (1/2 cubic yard capacity) that is ground driven and can be pulled by a lawn tractor or ATV. The other is a Mill Creek 45-bushel (2 cubic yard capacity) that is ground driven an can be pulled by a compact tractor.

As this equipment was purchased through water quality improvement funding, the only prerequisites we have are that you must have had a recent soil test that shows nutrient need, and/or a site visit from your area's farm planner to confirm that you have adequate pasture to utilize the nutrients in the manure.

All rental fees go into a fund to maintain and repair the spreaders. The rental fee is $15 per day, or $25 for a weekend rental, plus a $50 refundable deposit when returned clean and on time. Trailers are available to transport the spreaders for a $25 rental fee, and delivery is available for a $50 fee.
