New Acquisition - a Manure Spreader

Today we got a "new to us" used piece of equipment.  It is an older, smaller manure spreader.  

Since we don't have large animals people often ask why we have a manure spreader.  Ken uses a manure spreader for two main jobs on the farm.  

Ken uses his manure spreader to make compost.  Ken uses a lot of compost to return nutrients and organic matter to the soil.

He also makes his own potting soil with the manure spreader.  Once the spreader arrived at its new home, Oscar and Big Red had to check out this new object.
