UCD is excited to announce the availability of a manure spreader for rent starting in July 2015. Over the years we have worked with many livestock owners to build manure storage and composting facilities and provide technical assistance on manure composting and spreading guidelines. UCD is partnering with DJ’s Repair and Rental in Bingen to offer a Mill Creek Brand manure spreader with 57 cubic foot capacity. The spreader and transport trailer are available for a rental fee of $65/day.
