Horse poo, wood chippings and more...
    #4536986 - 08/15/05 08:18 AM (11 years, 6 months ago)

Hi I recently made a trip to a big set of stables in the attempt to get some horse poo. Now I was wondering... the lady there said the poo was high in "humus" or "hu-mus" I dunno something like that and she seemed to think this was a bad thing for growing stuff in... Any idea's on that? plus the 40kg bag of poo they gave me had a lot of wood chipping's/shaving mixed up with it. (not straw) Is this good bad? Plus unfortunately it is rather stinky and not dried out so I'll have to do some manual leeching... Any help form the experts of poo would be appreciated. :smile:

High in humus? Humus is decomposed plant and animal matter.........

Anyways. You'll be fine. Simply take the manure and allow it to bath in the sun until it's nice and dry. Lay it out on a tarp or something in a thin layer. Move it around every few hours to speed the drying process up. After it's nice and dry, you can screen the manure if you want to. I don't, but you can. I wouldn't worry with the chips to much. As long as they are nice and dry as well you'll be fine. If you screen the manure with a tight screen it will probably remove some of the larger chips or you can pick the larger chips out.

Another way you can get rid of a lot of the chips would be to add the manure into some water in a tub. Most of the chips will float to the top, making it easy to remove them.
