Drying out dung, faster way?!?
    #2060672 - 10/31/03 03:17 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

I was wondering if there is any way to dry out dung quicker than just letting it sit outside and air dry. Would it work to break it into chunks and bake it, or is there any way you could stick a container of dessicant inside a container of dung to speed things up??? I think it will definitely dry if it is broken into smaller pieces than if it's in big wet clumps correct?? Any help is appreciated!!! Thanks!!!

So basically you could bake it, but that creates a bad stink. If you were to grind it up while it was still wet, how would you know when it was dry enough to use?? Waiting on poo to dry sucks!!!

So, if you bake it in the oven is it pretty much ready immediately?? Anyone have any details as far as how hot and how long?? Also, would it kill the beneficial microbes if you baked it too hot?? Thanks!!!

best advice i can give is that you should wait a few days after the last rain before heading out to the fields to grab it. then get the driest you can find, if there are plenty of cows around the nice aged stuff is all over. then bring it home and break it up really small and lay it out on a table in a not much used place or even better stick it out in the sun for a day. should be dry as can be after that.
