Ah - don't generalize. A lot of folks do not like horse manure as the horses body doesn't break down the weed seeds like cattle do. If someone comes in to haul out, we have to pay minimum fuel. Anyone look at the price of diesel lately?
We have specific fields that we can spread specifc things on. One farmer does not want any bedding spread on his fields - so the manure pile from stall cleaning cannot be spread there.
We also compost and post ads on craigslist. We are also on the University extension list for the gardeners to come out for compost.
