Is it ok to spread barn cleanings from my sheep over the top of the ground around my tomato plants?

Any animal manure (except pig manure) is great for a garden, but it should be aged before application. Allow the manure to weather a bit to leach out some of the salts before putting it in the garden. Otherwise the excess urea may burn the roots of your plants.
