    For cold , wet weather I like Muck type as they are comfortable and keep my feet warm even standing on concrete. So far they stand up to manure, detergent, bleach, and acid on dairy cow farm.

    No leather boot will stand up to manure exposure very long. The enzymes in manure literally digest boot.

    If I am doing basic chores like feeding, moving hay, etc. And am not getting wet, muddy, manure, running shoes work for me.

    Chores like cutting firewood, fencing, I do have a pair of basic leather work boots.

    Thanks! I was thinking about getting Muck boots, but i saw a bunch of people saying that they tear/rip/get holes pretty easily. I think i will go with the Carhartt, and if they are garbage, i guess i learned a lesson and know to stay away from Carhartt boots. :)

    We do go through our Mucks... lol... we are their walking advertisement on BYH it seems. We pretty much live in our Mucks. They are waterproof, which we need. Warm in winter, which we need.
    I agree with @Donna R. Raybon although I never wear any regular shoes on our farm.
