Excerpt from Christian Cynosure, Vol. 21: September 20, 1888
The best time to apply manure to grass lands depends somewhat upon circum stances. As a rule, late in the fall, or just before the ground freezes is the best time; if hauled out in winter and Spread upon the snow, very good results may follow, provided the land is not so sloping as that when the snow melts the manure is not washed away. If hauled out and spread in the Spring, and dry weather follows, the manure is likely to be so dried up and burned that the results will not be satisfactory, but if heavy rains fall we may expect quite the reverse.
