Transporting in Bulk: Manure, Compost, and Grain
At Valley Carriers, we transport a wide variety of products in bulk, including manure, compost, and grain, to customers throughout British Columbia. All of our bulk product services are designed to provide our customers with high-quality products at a reasonable price.
Why Buy in Bulk?
Buying in bulk can be a great option for both businesses and homeowners as it can help cut down the cost of materials, as well as limit trips to and from the store. Buying bulk products, such as manure, compost, and grain, is an easy and simple solution for large products because the bulk materials can be delivered right to your front door.
At Valley Carriers, we have been proudly supplying our customers with bulk products for over fifty years. All of our bulk products are delivered, using one of our custom trucks and trailers, right to your home or business. Some of the bulk products we have to offer include:
Manure works to help enrich soil in gardens by releasing nutrients that are beneficial to plant life. Manure also produces increased soil carbon (an important source of energy) and reduces runoff, as well as leaching nitrates in the soil. Nearly any kind of manure can be used in the garden, but the most common types include horse, cow, and chicken manure.
Compost is another great product that offers numerous benefits when used in the garden or on the lawn. Compost can easily be purchased from most garden centres or it can be cultivated from your own compost heap in the backyard. If you are using your own compost, make sure that the compost is a dark, rich colour and crumbles easily. Some of the benefits of using compost in the garden include:
- Builds good soil structure
- Enables soil to retain nutrients, water, and air
- Maintains a neutral pH
- Protects plants from common diseases
- Prevents droughts
If you own a farm, buying grain in bulk can be a great option, as it will allow you to stockpile food for chickens and other birds without the worry of running out. Make sure that any grain bought in bulk is stored in a cool, dry location, such as a silo, to prevent the grain from being ruined.
