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.

If your soil is low in nutrient level the best solution would be to add the Composted Manure to improve organic matter content and then provide another source of nutrients. Read Less

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 40 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Compost 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. View the info on the pics. August 29, 2016
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 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 Black Kow manure I used this product last year for the first time when preparing my vegetable garden. I had read so many good reviews about, had to try it. It's okay I guess, nothing spectacular. It is so far a good price which makes it an attractive buy. It has no odor and spreads easily enough. August 16, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mostly wood chips Spread this out at night on my lawn for seeding. The next morning in the light I see my lawn covered in wood chips and gravel. August 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by My New Favorite Manure The Black Kow Composted Manure is perfect. There is no smell, which is important in a manure used around the home. The manure is similar to a mulch in consistency and is black in color. I actually used it as a decorative mulch around my hydrangeas. It really looks good and will help improve my soil in this planting area by increasing the organic matter content. The manure has a safe amount of nutrients, an added value as I used it. The 50 pound bag is probably on the upper limit of being a convenient size but is frankly the best combination of workable quantity and price. The manure itself is very easy to work with and the moisture content was perfect. I plan on using more of the Black Kow Composted Manure in the future and yes, I would recommend it to a friend. July 22, 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
