straw w/ bulk substrate
    #2068095 - 11/03/03 03:42 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Whats the benefit of the straw in a manure based substrate? I have both straw and manure, but i just recently read that straw is more apt to contaminate, so if it doesn't serve a somewhat significant purpose, perhaps i'll skip it. Thanks!

The straw can lessen the overall density of the substrate, but nice, fluffy horse poo all by itself is hard to beat, imho.

What the guy above said is true. Its basically there to help make the substrate a little bit less dense.

I prefer a 100% based manure substrate myself.

If I wanted to fluff up my mix, w/o using straw, I could use some verm couldn't I?

(:heartpump:, excuse me)
Maybe you should experiment w/ straight poo, straw and poo and straw w/ a little poo.
