Topic

There is one rule when spreading horse waste.  Avoid applying it on a pasture where horses live.  It is not sanitary and encourages the spread of parasites.  Periods of dry heat will kill the larvae, but few areas lack rain or dew.  It will also attract flies to the decaying matter, and who wants that.

You can spread waste into a pile away from the barn and have it removed regularly.  You can also spread it on a hayfield or other crops as fertilizer.

Spreaders can be self-propelled, where the turning of the wagon wheels provides the power to move the belt and spreader blades.  The advantage is that any vehicle can pull it, such as an all-terrain vehicle.  Powered spreaders require a PTO (power take-off) drive shaft attached to the tractor to move the belt and blades.  Adding a hydraulic powered or manual liftgate is helpful if you don’t want waste to fall out the back while carrying the load.  Often this is just a plywood board, but these can be hard to remove when the spreader is full.
