Customer Questions & Answers

Does this product contain anything other than cow dung? or is it pure cow dung?

Is this product pure cowdung or mixed with other ingredients?
Asked by: Chak
I spread 55 bags of Black Kow on my garden. I thought it seemed to be a wonderful product, and tho it was "moist to wet", it wasn't stinky or clumping too much... leading me to believe it must be composted quite well.

Is it completely composted manure?

Other manure brands contain humus and composted manure. How is this product? Is it purely composted manure or it also contains humus? If it contains humus, what's the percentage?

50 lb. Composted Cow Manure is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 58.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buying Manure by Volume! This is REALLY good manure... but be SURE to "buy it by the bag"! When purchasing separately: $5.19 per bag x 55 bags = $285.45 Offered as: 30 bags in half pallet = $274 (that's $9.13 per bag!) Offered as: 55 bags on a per pallet price of $403 = $7.32 per bag! SO... if you want 55 bags, just order separately, and SAVE $117.55 !!! SOMEONE needs to learn the math at Home DePot... but I am hoping they hold the prices per bag thru Spring 2017, so I can get some more for my garden! I also rented the Home DePot one ton truck for 3 hours... great way to get it all home and unloaded, ALL BY MYSELF! The following day I also rented a Home DePot rototiller and worked it all into the ground! TaaDaa!!! Susie T in Brookfield, WI

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My husband LOVES this stuff! My husband plants a container garden each year and he cannot say enough about Black Cow. He mixes it in with the existing soil; along with fish emulsion and kitchen compost. His vegetables grow well with little or no weeds. It contains organic material with a make up of 0.5-0.5-0.5. The bag is 50 lb. so it can easily be carried out to our garden. They say it covers 12 sq. ft. per bag, but we only use it in our containers which are large animal watering troughs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does some good Dug deep into a bed which had been improved somewhat, but needed rejuvenation. Helped break up lumpy clay soil & make easier to work & plant. However, like other reviewer, after heavy rain I noticed sandy surface of mostly clay. Can't say if compost part still deeper in soil. Also noticed sand in bed I fixed earlier in year when I went to plant later, but attributed sand to other mix. I haven't found any better organic amendment assuming there is some organic material in bag. Sand is good for clay soil & have used in tomato patch, but unhappy it's apparently in this amendment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was looking for a real manure We have always used cow or sheep manure in the country i was born in. However, i have always struggled choosing the correct product in the USA. There are so many different mixes for different purposes, i was never able to find a cow manure in Homedepot. I have now received this to try. Although i cannot comment yet on the growth support of the manure, it is a great/real old school fertilizer. If you will use for planting grass seeds, make sure that you water it twice a day otherwise it would burn your seeds under sun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Cow Manure! The 50lb. bag of Black Kow composted manure is an excellent value, and helps improve and aerate my clay soil in our dry and hot Southern California climate. The manure texture is moist and loose and the color is rich. Best of all, the product has no unpleasant odor. I will use it for all my newly planted flowers, vegetables, shrubs and trees. I highly recommend this high quality manure.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from TOO MUCH SAND!!! I created a raised bed on the side of my house. I made a mix of potting soil, Black Kow and vermiculite to fill the bed. Hurricane Matthew came along with torrential rain. About 1/5 of the bed got over wash from the roof. The area was compacted rather than washed away. When I looked at the compacted area it was pure white SAND! It was like all the black color was rinsed out and all that was left was pure white SAND! I used 20 bags of Black Kow in this bed and now I feel like I just planted $200 worth of plants in SAND! No wonder it's so inexpensive! And I did not see SAND listed as a component of the mix on the bag! Ripoff!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Treat For Your Garden!! Two years ago I decided to add a section of Asparagus in an area of extremely poor soil right next to my raised bed garden. Knowing that the soil was terrible for growing anything, I prepped the area as best I could, blending in peat moss, horse manure, and the wood shavings from the chicken coop. The Asparagus came in and actually did O.K., but it just wasn’t anywhere near as healthy as I felt it should be… Recently I blended in a 50lb. bag of Black Kow Composted Cow Manure and the Asparagus reacted well to it! Most of the yellowing has faded, the color is much better and the plants themselves appear to be much healthier. The price is fairly reasonable, and the product does work well. My Asparagus LOVES it, and I highly recommend it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fertilizer I really liked this brand of cow manure . it is not clumpy as other brands, it is a nice loom with easy of spreading. I use it in my garden and the plants like the nutrients and my vegetables seem to be larger and more colorful. It is nice that it comes in 50 LB bags so you don't have to buy a bunch of little 1-5 or 10Lb bags to do the area needed. this way if you need more you will have it on hand. I will rototiller the rest of this bag next spring and buy another to have on hand.
