Well this is a mountain of cow shit and apparently these mountains don't have any negative environmental impact.

On the positive side Iowa farmers are taking a liking to manure again, specifically hog manure, as it is now less expensive than commercial fertilizer.

Will that price differential hold up with the dramatic drop in the price of oil? Time will tell...
