Manure Directory Introduction

Download the Manure Directory HERE

The online Manure Directory has been created for growers with interest in using manure in their fertilizer program. The directory lists local contacts in Maricopa, Pinal, and Pima Counties with interests in and/or supplies of manure. The directory includes contact information, types of manure, and county location. This directory allows growers and livestock operators to:
  • Advertise and communicate with one another to find a manure source for their fields or outsource manure from their operations
  • Incorporate livestock manure, chicken, feedlot, and dairy manure, all which contain different levels of nutrients to promote crop production
  • Promote manure as a fertilizer option, as well as combat environmental concerns of excess manure build up in livestock operations
Manure usage can be an efficient and cost effective way to get crops the nutrients they need for the most productive growth and it is a sound management practice for feedlot operators and growers that have a readily available supply. Manure usage in fertilizer programs can help build soil fertility by providing nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium, micronutrient and organic matter, which leads to a more productive and sustainable soil. This directory also allows encourages livestock operators to seek grower diversity so manure can be spread to other field and growers, so the same fields aren’t receiving the manure from the same sources and getting a build-up of salts and phosphorus which can cause soil health problems.

If you would like to be added to the directory please contact Shawna Loper at 520-836-5221 or
