goat poo as manure?
« on: May 26, 2010, 03:49:50 pm »
just wondering if I can use my goats muck for manure and if so how do I 'prepare' it? I've got a much heap with chicken and goat (and rabbit) bedding and its been rotting for a year now.
thanks

I just put mine on the muck heap with all the other poo and use it the next year as normal.

I used to do the same as Karen plus a woolen sock full suspended in a old dolly tub of water for watering the tomatoes sheep Pooh does the same job as well tomatoes love it.Well one has never told me so but I once did a trial and the 3 with daily watering from the dolly tub were way ahead of the others :D :farmer: :wave:

I did the poo in a pillow case last year when George recomended it to me. It does really work.

is your life motto at the bottom about not rushing through life
and taking things a little easier e.g. finding time to just enjoy life without having to do everything at once
and missing out?

am i going in the right direction with this ;D

anyway thats what it means to me!

did you make it up? if so well done ;)
