Farmer Expresses Love for His Wife with 120,000 Pounds of Manure

Dick Kleis, a farmer in Zwingle, Iowa, decided to express his affection for his wife in a way that she would (apparently) appreciate. On the occasion of her birthday, he wrote out "HAP B DAY LUV U" in giant letters made of manure across his field:

But Carole Kleis isn’t just any woman — she’s the wife of a farmer, and a little natural fertilizer doesn’t bother her a bit, even if this particular usage is rather unusual.

"He's done weird things before for birthdays," she said. "But maybe not this weird." [...]

"I was going to put a heart out there after the happy birthday, but I ran out of manure," he said. "It's not hard. Any manure will work but the good, soft, gushy, warm stuff works the best. It kind of melts the snow."
