Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SusieT2000 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!!!

I use Cow Manure with other soils and materials. We are between growing seasons in SE Georgia, Zone 8. I mixed the manure with potting soil in a 2 gal container. I planted 4 sections of cucumbers. The mixture looks good and it doesn’t smell.
I also transplanted a 5 inch tomato plant into a 1 gal container with this mixture. It has shown good growth.
Now I will use the remainder of bag to till into a larger garden for winter collard greens. The compost also helps retain moisture.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MalteseMommy 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 4.0 out of 5.0 by Planter 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.

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by countrygirl13 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.
