D A youve one your home work. Ive looked into chicken litter. Up your way is turkey farms an egg factories. One is by Thompson Iowa. Think about a silage feed truck . youve got a way to mix and haul and dispense into your ecolawn.. Also find a feed mill that has some corn that has gone bad. compost or bokashi it . 9% nitrogen, has a natural fungicide and has some natural herbicide. Is there any mushroom farms by red wing min. Mushroom compost is good ,the thing against is it is high in salt content.

Thanks gj, lots of options...

Also, an edit to my thread started months ago.
I bought a load of bagged compost to start out with, doing a few lawns with my EcoLawn.
While quality product, the compost was TOO WET in the bag. Would not flow through my EcoLawn worth a darn.
I then went to a bulk compost that my landscape supply guy had, much drier and flowable product, spreads like a dream. Will never get bagged again.

You told me so.....
