Bulk substrates like straw or dung need only be pasteurized; the stovetop works well for either. I like this straw tek.
Dung can be pasteurized in a similar manner (in a pillowcase).

If you insist on using the oven, that's fine, just make sure you dry out the dung well beforehand (otherwise it will be stinky). You can fill containers with the bulk substrate, cover them with foil, bake in the oven at 170 (settings as low as "warm" or as high as 200 have reportedly worked), for 30-45 minutes. Slowly rehydrate with bottled drinking water and CLEAN hands in a clean area until a strong squeeze emits only a drop or two of water (approx 75% water for straw, not sure of the saturation percentage for dung, probably similar).

If you are doing large amounts of any heavy substrate like horse or cow dung. Use a meat thrometer. You will not get a 30 pound tub to 170, in the center, in 30 or 40 minutes.

SWIM boils water on the stove, dumps it into a small bathroom type trashcan, submerges the straw/poo... by adding boiling a pot of boiling water to the can ever 30 minutes, it maintains a desired temp of around 165.
