#2 CHICKEN LITTER: What do you do with the stuff?

Most of the corn and soybean yield contest winners use manure.   Is

chicken litter worth the hassle? Is there an advantage to pelleted vs.

loose litter?  Bill Hunt of Davidson, MI, who will discuss how he manages the 7,000 tons of chicken manure he applies to his farm each year.  Brian Gearling (from Herbruck’s Poultry Ranch) will also be present to discuss the possibility of volume discounts for group-buying large amounts of poultry manure for increased profitability.
