What do you do with the yucky hay left on the ground under round bales or feeders? I have burned it but that takes forever it seems. I have been scraping it into a pile with the tractor so the horses aren't constantly standing in it. (I use big round bales) I scrape off the old stuff and set in the new bale every time. The pile is pretty big (like my manure pile :) ) Should I just add it to the manure pile? I've already added some but then I started thinking maybe that's not good. I have a manure spreader and plan to put the poop on my pasture this spring.
Sorry editing: I used to just burn it under the pile of limbs I usually have from tree trimming. But now I have a manure spreader so wondered if it should be added to the poop.
