One business charges $45 per cubic yard plus $50 for delivery.

Our neighbors brought us about one and a half cubic yards of aged cow manure mixed with topsoil for 30 bucks.

You may consider asking how big of a truck they have. The $50 charge is typical for the truck load but if that truck can hold 15 or 20 cubic yards you may just want to get as much as you can afford and stockpile it if necessary. I'm hoping you are able to track down an arborist as well so you can have a source for free wood chips.
