I have not used it personally yet but have it from reliable sources that it is good quality and they can provide analysis results. I believe the pricing was $30 a ton. I don't know what that would translate into for cubic yards.

good stuff, I have never used it myself, but have worked with an lco that says its great, a little hot in the N side but makes great grass. and the have a test sample report that is 6 pages, and current. its not only meat its all things used or recycled.

I have been mowing their beardstown facility for two years now, (i work part-time for another lco who has the mowing contract) and they (cargill) use it alot around their facility. They used it in a crabapple tree hole when they planted it in june... it threw flowers in octber... wow a confused tree!(I'll try to post pics) I have just never read anything from anyone who has used it in "organic lawn care". Thank you for you replies, and I look forward to more. I will keep you posted on anything I find out.
