Applying animal manure

Context:
Cattle dung is of supreme importance. It is a rich source of nutrients and is colonised by huge numbers of invertebrates, which are important food for many birds and mammals. One cow produces about 4 tons of dung per year, but also an annual insect population weighing about a quarter of her own body weight.
