I live only a few miles from this farm and found him on Craigslist. Seems a little High price to me. Your thoughts please.

MrB, it is interesting that there is not a size comparison of the scoops. Is the "large tractor scoop" a cubic yard?  How much is in the "skid steer scoop"?  Here a cu yd of composted manure is around $20, but we don't have anyone that has (or advertises) rabbit manure compost. The good thing about rabbit manure is that it is very fertile it cannot burn plants, and it won't have all of the antibiotics and hormones that cattle or horse manure can have.

What other material was used during composting? I would think $20 is the usual cost but if it's good quality, it may be worth the extra ten bucks. With panic buying, some places are running out of bagged composts.

Don't know about the rabbit manure MrB found, but the composted cow and horse manure here is usually mixed with either sawdust (which farmers can get for free) or pine pellets. I know a couple people who raise rabbits for market, and they use pine pellets for bedding - the rabbits eat a lot of the pine pellets, so the manure is pre-mixed with them. Very Happy  They won't let me have any of the manure for my gardens, though, since they use all of it in their own gardens. Sad

According to the all knowing "G" - there is about 2 cubic yards in a skid steer scoop.
