Manure ? for JR

  JR help me out please.  Recenly a person wrote a letter to the editor of the local newspaper stating the  algae in Lake Erie is due to cows emitting 125# of manure daily.  I found that figure astounding, is it true?

Re: Manure ? for JR

I assume they are talking dairy cows.  If so yeas that is a very close number. Most of my cows are eating around 115 pounds as fed today.  So if it goes in it's gotta come out!


As to the algea thingy I find that suspect. With as many municipalities having money trouble anymore it could be they are not doing as good a job of treating sewage.
