The six-year-old was found unconscious by his grandfather in a milking parlour on Tuesday.
It was feared he had been overcome by fumes from the slurry, but he died from an undiagnosed heart problem.
Mourners gathered at St Mark's Parish Church in Armagh to pay their respects to Harry.
Revd Canon John W McKegney, who had baptised him in the same church six years ago, said he was "a real wee character" and a "lovable, generous and kindly boy".
Above all he loved the farm - he was never happier than when helping his father or grandfather - just as he was doing when he died on Tuesday

He continued: "Mark and Alison were truly blessed when Harry was born.
"Indeed, the joy of Will and Kate as they held little Prince George reminded me of Mark and Alison with first born son Harry just six short years ago.
"He was a quick learner and quickly learned about the way of farm life. Although he thought of himself as a 'wee man' rather than a 'wee boy', he was, as his picture clearly shows, a bright-eyed, outgoing boy with a ready smile - full of trust, full of wonder and full of hope."
Harry was a member of the BB and a pupil at Lisnadill Primary School. His younger brother, Ben, was born a short time after him - and they were "inseparable".
The Revd added: "Whereas it is not unknown for brothers to squabble and fight they were real buddies and Harry was always mindful of Ben's needs - even before his own. Together they adored their little sisters Rachel and Phoebe. They were a lovely family on the hill."
Harry was buried at St Mark's Churchyard following his funeral.
