Poo/Dirt
    #4037592 - 04/10/05 05:23 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

A FOAF has recently come across a large quantity of weathered poo, but there seems to be a decent amount of rocks, soil, etc in it. Is this going to present a major problem?

He has been putting a pound or so into a 10 gal bucket and agitating it with the hose (to break apart larger clumps.) Once the bucket fills up a bit a nice thick layer of straw/hay/grass (or whatever the horse ate) forms at the top, and he has been collecting this into a pillowcase.

The rocks fall to the bottom, but above this there is a layer that is darker than the "straw-layer," but still appears to be poo. The concern is, there is most likely a good amount of dirt in this layer as well, and I am wondering if this will hinder his efforts.

So my questions are:
Should he only collect the floating, more vegitative layer?
How does this compare to the "middle layer" as far as nutes go?
As long as the consistency is good, does it matter if there's dirt in it?

I'm sorry i know this question is slightly unclear but im thinking someone has had to have been in this position before, since most horse poo is simply collected into a pile on the ground. If necessary I can take some pictures...

Awhile back I made a thread about finding composted horse shit in a pile, I thought it was quite a find at the time. This was an unturned pile of horse poo that was broken down into a black soil consistency.

It flat out didn't work, and I was bummed. So, ideal horse poo is that which isn't composted from the stone age.

Use your jugement on the rocks, clippings, etc. Make a screen filter and get sift that stuff out.

Cool, thanks. I poured out a bucket to let it dry awhile ago and it looks like i'll be able to use that middle layer. Hopefully its not too dirty

Quality Myco h/poo should look about like this, with lots of fiber.

I also once tried to use stuff at the bottom of the horse manure pile because it looked black and rich like compost. It did not work. I agree that the best stuff looks like what agar and Diver are showing.
