Compost...

I have a huge dairy farm not to far from my residence. The farms owner grumbles all the time about the stuff turns into huge piles, even after he spreads it on his fields.
I thought about composting the stuff and selling it. Any ideas or advise.

REAL compost is more difficult to make than most people think......windrowing, wetting, turning, checking temps, ect.

I would say that 90% of the "composters" in Texas are really just selling crap that has been in a pile for a while....and hoping people do not know the difference.....improperly composted "compost" is a detriment to plants and lawns....not a help
