im serious. i worked my @$$ off 2 summers back running a backhoe allllllll day with 6 hours sleep each night. STACKING CHICKEN CRAP!!! IT SUCKED!!! the backhoe was old and had no forms of AC or even a fan. so i was breathing in that ammonia the whole time. and he was paying $2.50(i think, correct me if im wrong) a ton for it. he bought somewhere near 100,000 tons. i put it all into huge piles. now look at all the money he spent on low grade nutrients for his fields. now think, if all the farmers in the area(say 100 miles, i met a few guys haulin far off) had a meeting one night, and decided that they were going to send the chicken plant a letter stating, " We refuse to pay for manure, either let us have it for free(farmers will haul and everything themselves) or let it sit in your building because no body wants it."

Now, to me, that would make a lot of sense. they HAVE to get rid of it before the next batch of chickens, it cant sit in the bottom of the building.
