Much ado -- over "paca poo."

Jeff Koehl raises alpacas on his Inspiration Farm in St. Charles, Ill.

He says their manure makes great fertilizer.

Over the weekend, the music booster club at Central Community Unit School District 301 planned a paca poo fundraiser.

A 30-pound bag goes for $10.

The first poo sale last year made 600 bucks.

Booster club secretary Gudrun Dorgan tells the Chicago Tribune the kids have fun playing with alpacas.

Dorgan adds the kids also like seeing their teachers shoveling the manure.
