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:
A Frontier 25-bushel (1/2 cubic yard capacity) that is ground-driven and can be pulled by a lawn tractor or ATV. Currently unavailable for rental (under repair).
A Mill Creek 45-bushel (2 cubic yard capacity) that is ground-driven and can be pulled by a compact tractor.
The smaller manure spreader is available to rent for $60/rental and the larger one is available for $70/rental. Both manure spreaders can be transported to your farm on a PCD utility trailer. 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. To reserve manure spreaders or for more information, contact your area’s farm planner.
