Normally, farmers are nice, salt of the Earth type people, particularly those who still run their own farms like Americans of old. The last of American’s yeomen farmers, they represent much of what is best about America as it used to be: honor, hard work, connection to the Earth, and caring for the soil that feeds us/
But that connection to the land means that you don’t want to get in their way when they’re on it or, yet worse, trespass on their private property. Also like pre-wokeness Americans, they don’t take kindly to invaders and will not put up with them (were only our border protected by such people).
Further, farming runs on a very tight schedule because of the weather and seasons, so causing a delay is a big “no no” for them.
So, when a bunch of protesters set up on one farmer’s property and risked throwing his timetables completely off by refusing to leave and trespassing in his fields, he used nature’s fertilzer to shoo them away.
Manure, you see, is an excellent fertilizer. If you have cattle that produce it, it’s cheap. It nourishes the soil and crops. It’s not toxic, unlike many chemical fertilzers. And it can be easily spread with the right equipment, which this farmer had. That equipment sprays liquified manure over a field to fertilize it.
So, to solve his protester problem without having to get cops or guns involved, this farmer hitched up the manure spreader to his tractor, made sure it was full of nature’s fertilizer, and made a couple srafing passes with it to douse the protesters in the smelly spray and chase them off his land, hopefully for good.
Watch him do so here:
This incident was apparently sparked by the protesters protesting fracking on the farmer’s property and refusing to leave. Whisky Riff, commenting on what happened, said:
When a group of protestors showed up on a farmer’s land (trespassing) to have their voice heard against fracking that was going to take place on his property, he decided to take matters into his own hands to remove the group.
In this case, the farmer does his best Dale Jr, circling the group with precision, and spraying them with manure.
Great technique here – gives them nowhere to go, boxes them in, ruins some clothes and shoes and everybody is covered in crap. Just like you draw it up.
That’s not the only time a farmer doused protesters in manure. The same thing happened at a recent beef industry event, with Sky News Australia reporting:
But an AJP spokesperson added: “We’ve been sprayed with cow poo by one farmer using a machine.
“It has been a peaceful protest and a silent protest and we are overwhelmed and outnumbered by hundreds of angry farmers.
“It’s really violent and there was one farmer who went along and sprayed everyone’s clothes. Shouting, swearing, spraying us with manure, ripped the banners down. It’s absurd.”
