Get the manure in asap. always remove weeds as already suggested as well as stones, roots etc. Now is the time to thoroughly dig your ground. In future you can simply " top dress" manure, compost, etc Newboy.
unless your soil is heavy I would not rough dig. Incorporate your manure and level it reasonably. In mild dry spells you can then hoe off any weeds that germinate and the ground will be ready for spring that much earlier.
