I just read a great book titled 'Holy Shit' by Gene Logsdon. I never knew there was so much to learn about manure. In the book he covers the value and benifitt of manure, how to treat manures from almost any animal, & how th apply that manure to your field or garden. I recommend this book to anyone who strives to garden organically, who raises animals (dogs, chickens, pigs, cows, goats, cats, rabbits, ect.), or anyone who wants to save money on fertilizer while building the quality of the soil in a way that will still be evident in 50 years. I learned things about manure, compost, and animal bedding that I never learned while growing up on a small farm.
