Yes, a very old lady Jay whose memory glitched a little. With a little time, I think I remember that it was the use of a manure fork to handle a build up of cow manure in the book, Holy Shit: Managing Manure to Save Mankind by Gene Logsdon. I wrote a book report on it somewhere here on permies... it's well worth a read!
