Markets in everything

This one was only a matter of time:

Twelve tons of 15-year-old horse manure will be going under the hammer at a charity auction in west Wales.  Contractor Eynon Price, of Llandeilo, who donated the vintage dung, said it was worth more than £140.  Said to do wonders for roses and trees, the manure is one of 70 lots being sold in aid of Aberglasney Gardens.

It’s broken down really well and it has not got much acid in it so it is very good for planting roses or anything like that."

"This is quite a big load [sic] so you would be looking at anything up from about £140," he added.

Here is the story, and thanks to John Palmer, who writes The Eclectic Econoclast economics blog.
