An average 1,000-pound horse produces 9 tons of manure a year (50 pounds per day) containing valuable fertilizer elements. Add to that an additional cubic foot of bedding material and you get 730 cubic feet/year from one horse. How the manure is stored and treated has a substantial impact on its value.
