Manure (scenery)

Different types of manure or droppings are produced by each animal on the Manor Farm in their paddocks. These include mammal droppings, bird droppings, manure, green manure, and dragon manure.

When players "muck out", they gain Farming experience depending on the type of muck that is attempted to be cleared. The amount of muck in each pile varies between one and 79.[source needed] No matter how many times experience is gained, each pile of manure will only fill one bucket.

Muck does not affect animal stats or breeding chance. Thus, mucking any manure except dragon manure is mostly useful for its rather low experience gain and the chance at receiving master farmer fragments. While manure and green manure can be used when making compost and supercompost respectively, other items can be used which are easier to obtain.

Mucking out for cows 20 times is needed for I Hardly Manure achievement, which can be done in either a large pen or the breeding pen.

It is possible to obtain Mod Dolan's rubber duck and Mod Daze's homework from this activity.

Manure produced[edit | edit source]

Mammal droppings are produced by rabbits and chinchompas. Bird droppings are produced by chickens. Normal manure is produced by sheep, cows, and yaks. Green manure is produced by sheep, cows, yaks, and child dragons. Dragon manure is produced by adolescent and older dragons. This is all summarized in the following table:

Composting[edit | edit source]

Players can collect all three kinds of manure (manure, green, or dragon) if they have an empty bucket in the inventory, but mammal and bird droppings cannot be collected. These buckets can be placed into a compost bin to make various forms of compost. Manure is used for regular compost. Green manure is used for supercompost. Dragon manure is used for ultracompost, which increases the yield of Farming patches and dramatically decreases disease chance.[1][2][3] These manure piles spawn on a 10 minute cycle at game times ending in :00, :10, :20, :30, :40, and :50. Each animal has a 50% chance of producing one pile of manure each unless they have a trait that affects manure. The Constipated trait reduces the animal's manure chance to 0% and the Regular trait increases the output to 100% per cycle.
