48 Healthy Cattle Naturally Analysis — one with a higher pH The following analysis, which is from a farm in northern Victoria, is also showing a few problems at the other end of the scale. The difference between it and Analysis A is obvious, and as it is the first analysis I have seen from this farm I would expect that the farmer has been bringing his land into balance for a few years now.

The farmer’s refusal to use the slurry had caused the delay. You cannot farm organically by default, which means you stop using artificials but make no effort to replace them in the farming operation. Superphosphate came into use to replace animal manure fertilisers, which had been used for generations to maintain the health of the land in the Northern Hemisphere. It is easier to spread a powder than manure, and it was often easier to handle bags of super than loads of manure. Composting manure The best option is to mix the slurry with rice hulls, sawdust or other cheaply obtainable organic matter and make compost on a grand scale.
