My parents have horses and cows at their place. They pile up the shavings and horse crap and the left over hay and cow manure. After a couple years they add it to a larger pile that has been going for about 10 years. So everytime I went to their place the past couple years I took my trailer and brought back a couple yards of compost they made. The whole yard I have worked the compost into the top 8 to 12 inches of soil. I added some chelated iron the past fall too. The new grass should do really well in it.
