In order to prevent the contamination of local waterways and groundwater, the Pierce Conservation District maintains a contact list of local livestock farms that have more manure than they can utilize on their properties. This list is available to gardeners and crop farmers seeking a natural source of nutrients, that also provides important organic matter and micronutrients no found in conventional commercial fertilizers. Those seeking manure can contact the livestock owners directly to arrange pick-up or delivery (if available) of the material. Livestock owners are encouraged to compost their manure to make it a more useable product. But if not, a guide on composting manure is available on our resource page under the Manure Management heading.
