Here's Rock River Valley Compost lab results:

For the January 2013 the lab looks like they crossed out "Cattle Manure" and never assigned a Lab Number. So they don't add cattle manure to their compost....it was just an employee mistake.

Keith Schuler from Ecolawn Applicator said when he was here, that their compost was some of the best he's ever seen. And he's been all over the USA and Canada.

When I'm spreading, I am putting down 1/4" to 1/2" of compost. Sometimes a little more in other areas. The little more areas, I will spread seed on bottom and then once I'm done, I will spread the rest of the seed on top. I've found I've gotten the best results this way. The seed on top gets buried quickly from the rain and sprinkling from the customer since the compost is loose and soft. I will also spread Milorganite to kick start the growing process too.
