Frozen Poo
    #1178648 - 12/30/02 04:13 AM (14 years, 4 months ago)

Collected about 60lb (wet) horse manure this weekend. Trying to dry in my garage but it is freezing outside. The poo is frozen (hard with ice crystals). Is this bad? Seems like it could offset the bacterial colonies? Definitely won't dry very fast while frozen :smile:.

maybe try using a hair dryer on a small amount. Or use one of those fan/heaters available at the Home Depot and line the inside of a box with tin foil and mount the fan on the side and spread a small amount of dung in the closed box. Make some small air output holes (1 in. or so) at the opposite end of the fan.

I'm not so much concerened with getting it thawed and dryed as I am with making sure the bacterial populations the poo offers haven't been offset in a bad way. Thanks for the suggestions tho, I will be needing a method to thaw/dry this crap. The real question is: Is poo just as good after having been frozen or does freezing cause some "damage" where fresh poo would be a better alternative?

I wouldn't think it would have any adverse effects on the needed bacteria, but my climate doesn't get that extreme so I haven't ran across that one, sorry.

I havn't had any problems with frozen poo I use horse and cow and here now it in the 20's I have some out in my barn. All i do is bring it in the basement after a day it nice and wet again(damn). I PC my dung and I have not had problem with it. I pasturize sometimes too. but if it wet when you do cook it for 1 1/2 hour that will kill off any contams I have found out.But PC'ing I think is the best. tell you the truth I get the same grow from PC'ed dung as I do pasturized dung. Some time the PC stuff is better.

I really don't think PC need that extra bacteria like your Azure and other wood loving strains do. they get what they need from the dung without the bacteria. I pc my dung for 2 1/2 hour and nothing would live after that. PLus contams are like .05% because there nothing living in the dung after that. Plus I use my wife flowhood she has for her orchids there a blacklite in it so you can see if theres and bacteria or contams before you start.

I let my dung weather and age in Pa. weather sometimes a year or more with no adverse effects. Dry it and pastreurize with my straw.

Not all contamination floresces under UV. If there is a UV lamp in a professional flow hood, most likely it is a UV-C lamp, which destroys most forms of contamination. Typically they are used to kill any living 'particles' that get trapped in the HEPA.
