If you have livestock, then you have manure. It’s just a fact of life. It’s also a fact that you have to clean it up and do something with it. The good news is livestock manure can make an excellent fertilizer for your pasture, which is why a manure spreader might be just the ticket for getting rid of your manure problem. Manure spreaders come in a wide variety of sizes and operating systems, but they’re all designed to mechanically throw manure out the back or side of the machine as you drive over your pasture.

In the video above you’ll notice that the PTO-driven manure spreader has been matched with a John Deere 5100E Utility Tractor, complete with an operator cab. Operator cabs are a pretty nice feature to have on your tractor if you’re going to be spreading manure. Because somewhere along the line, you might be moving downwind!
