The Wallenstein ground driven spreader has a 2.5 cubic yard capacity and is available for loan to residents in the District’s service area. The manure spreader is currently available for no charge thanks to a grant from the Rose Foundation.
To be eligible to use the spreader, you must have a farm plan with the Whatcom Conservation District, or a nutrient management consultation and soil test prior to the use of the manure spreader. We are currently in the rollout phase and while we are working on scheduling please contact our farm planners to discuss a potential loan time. We drop off and pick up the spreader either for a few weekdays or a weekend loan period. If you are interested in learning more, please contact Corina or Katie at 360-526-2381.
