Subject: RE: Running Good Disk in Hog manure, put away wet for winter

East of Broken Bow
Did something similar for many years back when we used to have hogs.
What we found worked pretty good, was to disk the manure under, then kind of clean up the disk what you can in the field (used a cornstalk or whatever to remove any blobs of dirt or manure) then grease the disk, and disk a little bit of clean ground, enough to get any manure residue off the blades, tires, etc.
My dad did that before I did, and in 20+ years of doing that, never had a greasable bearing go bad that I can remember. Dad said once he had some non-greasable bearings that caused trouble, but couldn't say if it was because of the manure, or just being stored outside for the winter.
