Manure is a resource used for fertilizing planted crops and creating farms. It can stack up to a maximum of 20 in the inventory or on the ground and does not spoil over time. Manure is a renewable resource that is generated by several creatures in the world, including PigsKoalefants, Beefalo and Splumonkeys. They are all dropped from their animals periodically, except for the Pigs, who need to be fed Vegetables, Fruits or Petals, and Splumonkeys, who throw it at the player as an attack.

Manure can be used to fertilize the vegetables that farms produce and helps them grow faster, unless it is winter. Manure is also required to fertilize Grass Tufts or Berry Bushes after they have been dug up with a shovel and replanted.

Manure can also be used as fuel in Campfire or Fire Pits. It will burn for 90 seconds and releases a gas cloud when burned, which is only for humorous effect.

Manure works the same way as Guano; Guano is a better fertilizer than manure, but Guano cannot be used to craft any of the farms.

Wilbur can equip manure like a weapon and throw it at enemies. Once thrown, the manure is destroyed and can't be picked up again.

In the Reign of Giants DLC, Manure can be used to extinguish fires; that is, apart from Camp Fires, Fire Pits, Endothermic Fires, and Endothermic Fire Pits.

In the Shipwrecked DLC, Prime Apes will throw Manure at the player when player attacks them, which then can be collected. Attacking one will cause all nearby Prime Apes to become hostile. Prime Apes also drop Manure when killed. Both of these sources depend on the Prime Ape having at least one piece of Manure in the first place, which is generated when it eats. The Manure throw does decrease player's sanity but does not do any damage to the player's health. Hammering Prime Ape Huts also yield Manure.

Manure can most easily be gathered near Beefalo herds, typically found in Savanna biomes. Each Beefalo (adult or baby) randomly drops Manure as they roam around the map. This can be done by trapping the herd in a pen, however Beefalo can escape pens when they are in Heat.

Manure can also be generated by Pigs. When a Pig consumes a flower petal, vegetable or fruit food item, they will drop Manure. Pigs accept only one non-meat food per fifteen seconds. After this time has elapsed, the player can feed the Pig again. When a Pig becomes a Werepig, it will eat entire stacks of food one item after another and produce entire stacks of Manure at once.

Koalefants also drop manure similar to Beefalo; however, as only one Koalefant spawns at a time, it is less efficient to gather from them. This can be done easier by trapping the Koalefant in a pen.

Splumonkeys do not drop Manure but will throw it at attackers, which inflicts damage and lowers sanity. They can be picked up after.

When destroyed, Pig Torches and Splumonkey Pods drop Manure.

Wilbur will naturally drop manure every few days.
