Answer: 
This product contains obvious small sticks, wood chips, and sand. There may be cow dung in there as that is what the product is promoting, but that is not obvious. I guess it works, because so many people like it. As for me, I don't use it if I don't have to!

Answer: 
I bought 5 bags to spread lightly on top of my flower beds before adding mulch. I happened to water this in before mulching, and I discovered it contained about 20% gravel! I didn't see the gravel before watering because it was covered in manure dust. So disappointed!

I don't know why some people are saying this is 50/50 manure/topsoil. It is 100% fully composted cow manure with the exception of some incidental bedding material that gets scooped up with the manure. This is a copy/paste from their website:
"Black Kow® composted cow manure is made from the finest raw materials available...manure from dairy farms. To see how it’s made, let’s start at the beginning with the cows at the dairy farm. We "employ" over 20,000 cows a year to get enough raw material for Black Kow composted cow manure... We never add peat, sand or fillers of any kind to Black Kow. We work only with what the cows give us. Cows will eat what they find in the pasture and that can eventually turn up in their manure. You might occasionally find a bit of bark, a small piece of black plastic film or a pine needle or wood shavings (often used as bedding). These are often found in the grazing areas, milking barns or holding pens."

Not a bad smell no. It's an earthy compost smell. I don't even think you'd really know it's manure if it didn't say it on the bag. Maybe a slight manure smell but very slight. I liked it. Also very easy to spread around.

Answer: 
The Black Kow Composted Manure would be great for Pear Trees. It would increase the organic matter content of your soil while providing some level of nutrients. The composted manure would help your soil manage nutrient content and availability as well as moisture content. I would apply the Black Kow Composted Manure around the base of the tree from trunk to drip line.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 36 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by highly recommend Amazing! Tilled in about 6" deep with the natural soil, my garden is going crazy, 5' tomato plants and everything else loves it too July 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Composted cow manure The Black Kow manure is good healthy looking composted manure with no large sticks or other materials mixed in. Other reviewers have said that the manure doesn't look good and has foreign objects, i.e. large sticks, pine cones, etc. in the bag but I have not had that experience. I have put some manure around my peach, magnolia and blueberry bushes and they are doing fine. I plan on using more from the bag for my strawberries but the weather hasn't been cooperating. I do recommend this product. April 6, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice Product At the beginning of the growing season the composted cow manure was mixed with the natural soil, which in this case is clay. Planted lettuce seeds and the plants took off beautifully, so much in fact the rabbits had made a meal of it. Used it with the zucchini and green beans with the same excellent results. Much better than dehydrated cow manure. Definitely recommend. July 21, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good rich stuff This is good rich compost. A little heavier than the compost that I make, but then mine has no manure in it. I compost green waste and dead leaves. There is no manure smell to it which means that it is thoroughly composted and just the nutrients remain. That's the part that nourishes the plants and that's what we want. It is so composted that it says that it will not burn plants if you plant right away. In other words, mix it into your soil and plant your plants without worry. The only thing that I know of that will not burn plants straight out of the animal, is goat droppings. The 50 pound bag was too much for me to carry so I got a hand truck to move it to the pot. January 28, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Cow Manure The Compost cow manure, as the name suggests is the animal manure product for your garden. Unlike the typical manure that stinks up your entire neighborhood, the Composted Cow Manure is almost odorless. I apply the compost in my lettuce bed, container, and tree to give them a boost of fertilizer. This is not an organic compost. The N-P-K (nitrogen-phosphorous-potassium) ratio is .5-.5-.5, not very high, so you don't have to worry about burning your plant. One thing I noticed that is the coloration of the compost. Compost usually have a dark color, but this compost seems to be on the light side. The composition is primary of wood chips and manure. The back label reads: "derived primary from plant foods: cow manure". It's quite a heavy compost in terms of composition. It also contains many unbroken, large pieces of wood chips. If you planting tree, this compost could work for you. Otherwise, I would stick to plants base compost that container worm casting, bat guano, forest humus, etc... December 19, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great product Cow manure is one of the finest natural fertilizers. Even when exceeded amount is used there is no danger of plants getting burned. I checked the web site of Black Kow (0.5-0.5-0.5) manure manufacturer. The composted cow manure is coming from manufacturer's own CAFO plant. For costumer's trust manufacturer posted on internet web page http://blackkow.com/_html/howitsmade.htm#howmade_top_anchor showing all clean and safe processing during making composted manure. The composted manure in the bag is fine material of almost black color (see pic. 6). On back side of the bag are instructions for using product when planting trees and shrubs (pic.1) , for flowers and vegetables (pic. 2). Pic. 3 shows instructions how to handle this product in general. I spread this fertilizer around my perennials, which were last year quite neglected. Now their soil is prepared to give good boost to plants in spring time. December 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Trusted natural fertilizer I have been using Black Kow for at least 10 years as a natural fertilizer, especially around my vegetables and herbs. It definitely seems to make a difference in the production and growth in all of my plants. I like that it is a natural product, so you can feel safe using it with edibles. I like to turn the manure into the dirt with a pitch fork or tiller before planting, but I have also sprinkled it over the soil after planting. June 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Blend Of Soil & Fertilizer This is an excellent blend of manure and natural soil byproducts. It comes packaged like soil in a huge bag that is easy to tear. It does not smell bad since it is soil and manure. There was minimal bark in the bag I received. I used it in the flower bed, a couple of potted plants and then the rest on a re-seeded area of lawn. For the bag I got, it was not at all clumpy either. It broke up nicely and could be raked into the soil within minutes of use. April 29, 2016
