I model the midwest and wanted some extra uses for my gons and hoppers so It was my conjecture that "bulk" manure loads might be an accurate bill for them?

Here are a couple which were taken from the car ferry manifests archived from the Ann Arbor Railroad:

January 14, 1975 / CVC 402583 (50 foot boxcar) / manure
