hello everyone. i'm new to this mushroom thing. never tried them yet. but i know that they grow in the wild on cow crap. Why does it grow on cow crap? Is it somthing the cow eats? Some sort of grain or somthing? I have some cattle and if it is somthing i can feed them that would be cool. thanks

Why? Nature.

You need to make sure the manure is all natural and contains no pesticides given to the cow orally. Just regular cow crap is fine. You give them grass to eat correct? If so, that will do fine. You might want to compost the poo a bit first.

Check the FAQ for a bulk poo/straw tek.

what if you mixed up a bunch of spores into their water?
or just fed them like 1 mush per cow?

Cows injest the spores that are usually deposited on grass so if you spored their water you might have a crop that would be so fruitfull that you would be abel to supply all of us here at the Shroomery with an unlimited supply for life.

The wild mushrooms that you typically find on cow dung, Psilocybe coprophila, grow on cow and horse dung becuase the dung provides the ideal nutrients for that particular species to run it's life cycle. . .cellulose, other simple sugars and unmetabolized lipids. The mushrooms that people grow at home are typically Psilocybe cubensis, which also grow on dung because just like coprophila, it's is an ideal substrate for the fungus to obtain it's nutrients. It's not the best idea to consume a wild mushroom that grows off dung because the fungus often shares the cow dung with bateria. Some species of bacteria excrete toxins that are toxic to us when consumed and can put a person in toxic shock. That's why when people do cultivate on dung, they makes sure it's sterilized before hand. But the typical home grown mushroom is grown on a brown rice or grian which provide simular nutrients as does dung but are easier to work with and easier to keep contamination free.


Phase 1... collect underpants... phase 2...??? ... Phase 3 - PROFIT!

Only about 26 of the 190 known species of psilocybian mushrooms grow on cow dung. The majority grow in grasses, woodchip mulch sandy soils and sphaghum mossees.

Psilocybe coprophila is a dung shroom but has no hallucinogenic properties.

Cows also eat shrooms when grazing. and spore deposits are on grasses but most shrooms grow on manure which has fallen on grasses containg the spores already deposited on them.

That is the manure covers a mycelia on a strand of grass and thus beginds to grow.

Sometimes the mycellium grows int he manure formulating int he cows stomach and a crop can appear in fresh manure.

Pictures of that occurence are ooisted at my site inthe cultivation section of my site with a 21 day fruiting of a single cow pie of Copelandia tropicalis from Hawaii.
