Illinois Manure Share Program

Illinois Manure Share is a free program that benefits livestock owners, gardeners, landscapers and the environment! It is a manure exchange program that brings gardeners and landscapers searching for organic materials for use in composting or composted manure fertilizer in contact with livestock owners who have excess manure and or composted manure.

The program's goal is to remove the manure from farms that do not have the acreage to adequately utilize its nutrients on their fields or pastures. This benefits water quality by removing excess nutrients from farms and by lowering the amount of commercial fertilizer used by gardeners and others.
