how do you figure that it cant happen? if the spores are present and they like the medium they are placed in then why wouldnt they grow. natural occuring process... used gulf coast cubensis. i have talked to others who say that they have done this and said they were sucessful. said that they fed the cow an apple with spores on it. shroom wizard told me to just innoculate the ftreshest shit i could find. please tell me why you think it wont work.. thanks all.........

do you think that every spore that drops produces mushrooms? even in a controled environment it isnt that easy.
you might be able to use mycelium to innoculate cow shit but i gaurantee you wont get shrooms by feeding a cow spores or sticking a needle in their shit. ever seen a three week old cow flop? with flies and other pests climbing all over it? true some shrooms grow on cow shit but most are woodlovers.
maybe it would work to jam a handful of mycelium up a cow ass(just kidding)_
the reason that we all grow on rice and grain and vermeculit in terrariums isnt because we havent thought of cows it is because it is the easiest way.
but if it worked for your friend then you should go for it.
but I wouldnt

why not inncoluate at least one container/jar of streile media, with your syringe, allow that to grow and then innoculate the wild, that way you would be able to perpetuate your strain by simpley innoculating a new jar with a few mL's before dumping the colonized jar into the pasture, you would be spreading mycelium that is already growing and not chancing whether spores would germinate, and not waste a whole syringe on one shot.
that's what i would do if i did this sort of thing.
but i dont.

Contrary to your thoughts, there have been people here in the Pacific Northwest that feed 7 cows sporeprints every May and in June and july there have been fruitings of P. cubensis in his field but the following year nothing grows again so he has to repeat the process every season. OF course he gives these cows about ten to fifteen prints each for almost every couple of days for a few weeks.

If you have a farm and you have many cattle and live between Texas and Florida and from Florida to Georgia in the north then you too could feed cows spore prints on a continous basis and maybe, just maybe something might began to happen, but that is very rare.

You would have to continously feed them prints until shrooms appear. and not all of the time does this method work.

Even in Hawaii I have tried that with no success yet there are Copelandia species but never any cubensis whatsoever. If they arent in your field then go elsewhere. or maybe they are in your field but not when you have been in there.

Who knows. Go from field to field and eventually you will find some if they are in season.

Have a shroomy day and may all of your days be shroomy.
