The liquid manure scoop is a large spoon with usually a hemispherical (galvanized) iron scoop blade (diam. Approx. 25-30 cm) attached to a long (approx. 120-140 cm) wooden handle.
With this tool, the vulture is scooped out of the manure tub and spread over mainly pasture.
Sometimes a bucket or an old lump nailed to a handle is also used for this.
To be distinguished from the bucket with long stick used to scoop the manure from the cesspool into the manure tub.
A similar spoon, but made of copper, was used in Germany instead of the bleacher's shovel (2). [MOT]
