thanks for this, seems easy enough.

one thing id like to know is: where do you guys go for poop?
random stables & ranches? feed stores?
that would prolly be the hardest to acquire for me.




I feel like the most difficult item to get would be the 55 gallon drum. I don't even know where to start looking for something like that. Agar says the surplus supply stores.. but I'm not exactly sure what that is or how to find any in my area.

The horse poo you just get from people with horses. Ask them if you can get some poop from their field for your garden or something.

From the sun heating it, would using a black barrel help speed up the process? Or would it have any kind of negative effect?

For plastic drums.

FIRST, use your local PHONE BOOK.
Call around & check.
Some places may not have them.
But, may know WHO DOES.

Also, check your local http://www.craigslist.org/

Look in your local phone book for horse stables, or horse riding / boarding.
They (most often) give h/poo away FREE, by the pick up truck load full.

used plastic drums: http://www.recycle.net/specs/gr500530.html

they are kinda expensive but are def. worth the money.
youre gonna want an "open top" drum for this project.
to be honest i would prolly steal one from somewhere using it as a trashcan and buy a top for it.

now someone tell me where i can get some cheap poopoo.

Used plastic drums run about $20 each.
Most often found at surplus type stores.

To get properly aged/leached poop, either select nuggets that are dried, light in color, or odorless, or spread fresh poo on a tarp and let it sit outside through a couple of rainfalls, then dry in the sun.

>>>so now, can you give some info on drying/leeching ect...<<<

I dump a truckload out on a concrete pad, spray it with a water hose, then let the sun do the drying.

Others scale & methods of leeching & drying will vary.

You can use well weathered & dryed h/poo as substrate.
Without composting it.

This thread is a way to make compost, using horse or cow manure.
You can compost fresh manure that smells of shit & urine.
you cannot use fresh h/poo or C/poo as substrate.
Unless it is well leached, then dried first.

Straight up, weather aged h/poo, works.

So the composting tek you are explaining here,as any composting process, can use both as an ingredient(leached and fresh), isnt it?  :grin:

The composting process can use either fresh, or aged manure.
(fiber & nitrogen source)

Fresh, smelly manure is actualy better to start composting with.
It's alive with microbes.

If you have a good healthy fiber mixture, there is no need for Verm.

As it composts, keep an eye on it - towards the end of the process.

Don't let it compost into DIRT like substance.

The longer you let it compost, the more FIBER is broken down.
