The change in temperature has been swift, but I remember being struck by how quickly the chirps and hum of nature disappeared last fall. Â One day it was there, and the next it wasn’t. Â Two days ago the woods were completely silent at night except for the occasional owl hoot, and yesterday it was as if everyone got the memo. As the days have gotten nicer they’ve also begun to pass much more swiftly. Â That tends to happen when you’re constantly busy, web work in the morning and projects in the afternoon.

Calculating Manure Application Rate Animal Manure Management. Manure is a very good source of nutrients for plants and organic matter for soils. How Many Nutrients Will the Crop Use. The starting point for determining manure application is to calculate the amount of nutrients, especially nitrogen N and phosphorus P, expected to be used by that year's crop. To find the values recommended for your area, do a web search for "crop nutrient uptake" or "crop nutrient removal" plus your state's name. The following pieces of information are usually needed to use your state crop nutrient tables. Not needed in all states. What is the expected yield for this crop. The crop nutrient uptake tables for your state will usually provide a factor to calculate nutrient need of the crop based on the expected yield. Organic-nitrogen from past legume crops or past manure applications continues to mineralize into crop-available nitrate-nitrogen for several years. To estimate how much nitrogen will become available from past manure ...

Application rates are limited to 10 wet tons/acre for solid manure that is more than 50% moisture and five wet tons for manure less than 50% moisture. Applications should be made on land with at least 90% surface residue cover such as good quality hay fields or pastures, fields where all corn grain residues are remaining after harvest, locations where all wheat residue cover is remaining after harvest or fields with well-established cover crops. Utilize field which are farthest from streams, ditches, waterways, surface inlets, etc. from environmentally sensitive areas and areas of concentrated flow such as grassed waterways, surfaced drainage ditches, streams, surface inlets and water bodies.

Monitor earthen basins and manure application. Sugar Producer Magazine. Monitor earthen basins and manure application. Dry, hot weather combined with manure application or irrigation can have unintended consequences. Cracks in the soil can provide a near direct line for manure to reach a stream. The same weather conditions can cause problems in earthen basins used to store manure, according to the Department of Natural Resources DNR. "We don't want to add to livestock farmers' stress levels, but we've had similar conditions a few years ago and had several fish kills and water quality problems," said Cindy Martens, an environmental specialist in the Iowa DNR's Spencer field office. "And some of our field staff are seeing big cracks in the walls of earthen basins.". If manure application is necessary, the DNR has the following tips to help reduce the risk of manure going to a stream:. Check for cracks in the soils before applying. Check tile outlets before, during and after application. If it rains or the outle...

Two new designs for manure solids and liquids sampling from tank, pit, and lagoons at various depths. The objective of this research was to design and construct manure sampling systems that could be used to sample manure at various depths more than 25’ from a variety of swine manure storage systems. Two slurry sampler systems were devised that could be lowered to a variety of depths within the manure slurry and then opened and closed remotely in order to collect a sample from a specific depth with minimal contamination from manure slurry from shallower or deeper depths. These designs proved to be low cost, robust, and possessed several features easily transportable, large sample orifice, minimal sample contamination, ample volume collection, and variable depth collection that proved superior to off-the-shelf wastewater collection systems which were not appropriately designe...

... Electric Vehicles. Rain, Manure Application Timing Affect Carbon Losses Jun 25, 2009. Scientists at Purdue University have investigated the impacts of manure application, crop rotation, and nitrogen application rate on dissolved organic carbon DOC losses from tile drains. Twelve field treatments included a restored prairie grass, continuous corn rotations and corn–soybean rotations fertilized at three nitrogen rates, and continuous corn rotations fertilized with lagooned swine effluent applied in the spring or fall of each year. The study determined that annual losses of DOC were not affected by any crop management practice. Ongoing research at the water quality field station is being conducted to quantify nutrient and contaminant losses in tile drains as a result of manure application and crop rotation.

1 Soil and water conditions. Generally speaking, cracking soils and preferential flow of manure to a tile line is not an issue in Iowa. Tillage prior to manure or fall fertilizer application may actually shatter soils such that no structure will remain and intense rainfall may cause surface crusting that reduces water infiltration and could cause runoff of nutrients. If you surface-apply manure, you could lose nutrients from runoff of nutrients on the soil surface. In either case, a low intensity rainfall could benefit movement of nutrients into the soil, but a high intensity rainfall could cause loss of nutrients from runoff and erosion.

Capital Press KIMBERLY, Idaho — A single application of dairy manure can significantly improve soil organic matter in farm fields, according to data from the first season of an eight-year University of Idaho study into manure use. It’s funded with $85,000 per year from Idaho wheat, barley, potato, sugar beet and dairy organizations. In USDA research fields in Kimberly, Moore planted wheat and barley this season using conventional fertilizer in one field and varying rates of manure, plus supplemental fertilizer, in other fields. At 18 tons per acre of manure, barley yielded 150.6 bushels per acre, compared with 139.2 bushels per acre on a field with only commercial fertilizer. Yields began to decline — likely due to increased lodging — at higher applications, dipping to 132.8 bush...

You’ll get one estimate of plant-available nitrogen for surface-applied manure in the summer, another one for injected manure in the fall, and yet another estimate for manure applied in the spring.

LEWIS, Iowa Iowa State University Extension and Outreach is hosting a manure management and runoff control demonstration on Friday, Aug. at the ISU Armstrong Research Farm located near Lewis, Iowa. The purpose of this demonstration is to review low-cost options for managing runoff water and manure from small to medium size beef and dairy feedlot operations. Small and medium size open feedlots can potentially discharge significant amounts of nutrients to streams, said Shawn Shouse, ISU Extension field agricultural engineer. According to Kris Kohl, ISU Extension field agricultural engineer, Pumping effluent onto cropland is not a common practice in Iowa, but by doing so we can reduce the potential for nutrients to reach the stream and the effluent can provide nutrient...

One of Russell Robaidek's customers always wants him to apply manure when the alfalfa is 6 or 7 in. Advertisement. One of Russell Robaidek's customers always wants him to apply manure when the alfalfa is 6 or 7 in. In the northern half of the country, the practice of applying manure slurry to alfalfa is still limited primarily to the few farmers who are partial to it, and to those who just need someplace to apply — anyplace. Robaidek, for example, uses a form of injection on established alfalfa fields. The amount of manure farmers apply to established stands seems to be rising as well. Researchers in Minnesota and Massachusetts recently used 5,000 gals./acre quite safely. The combination of nitrogen fixed by the alfalfa and added in the manure might increase the chance for leaching and nitrogen escape. Rankin suggests 40 units, or about 4,000 gals....

Farm Industry News. 0 Advertisement. Crop farmers looking for a bargain may want to apply manure on their fields this spring. Crop experts estimate that farmers can save $10 to $20/acre using manure rather than commercial fertilizer, while maintaining corn yields. To help crop farmers arrange manure applications, a Carroll, IA, firm has set up a manure brokering business. Agren arranges the transfer of manure from hog producers, who need to dispose of it, to crop farmers, who want it applied on their fields. Stan Buman of Agren says they started the business last year after noticing that hog producers are often reluctant to approach their neighbors. Buman says Agren is the only brokering business he knows that handles hog manure. Buman explains that a hog producer with a 3,300-head finishing site needs about 300 acres on which to sp...

Permalink Reply by Isabell Strange on November 26, 2010 at 8:01pm. Hi Richard I have been making liquid manure out of couch grass for a few years now reccomended by a friend with a hort degree. I only use the liquid strain it off and leave any solids in the bucket and keep adding water and more grass etc. I am sure you could do this with the weeds you mentioned and I am going to start includuing old mans beard in my mix.

Thomas The author works with Oak Point Agronomics, Hammond, N.Y, and is formerly with the William H. Miner Agricultural Research Institute, Chazy, N.Y. Miner Institute’s dairy operation includes a slurry manure pit with a capacity of over 6 million gallons. The pit is almost 500 feet long, 145 feet wide, and about 9 feet deep. Each spring, we agitate this pit for many hours prior to spreading manure. Even though we have several places around the pit for the agitation and pumping equipment, dropping an agitator into the corner of a pit this size is about as effective as trying to stir a swimming pool full of pea soup with an eggbeater: The equipment just isn’t sufficient for the size and volume of the storage. After agitating for a day or so, the manure appears to be somewhat homogenized, but there’s a layer of highly liquid slurry t...

European countries, especially Denmark and the Netherlands, have taken the lead. Half of all the pigs in the world live in China — a consequence of the country's swelling appetite for pork. But researchers have sometimes found disturbingly high levels of antibiotic residues in manure from Chinese pig farms. A study published Monday by the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences adds to evidence that antibiotic use by Chinese pork producers poses health risks. According to the study, manure from pig farms doesn't just contain antibiotic residues. It also carries high concentrations of bacteria that are resistant to antibiotics. This ...

(1/331) Isolation of animal viruses from farm livestock waste, soil and water.

Ten porcine enteroviruses, 2 porcine adenoviruses and 1 coronavirus were isolated directly from 32 samples of slurry collected from a pig fattening house. Concentration of the same samples by adsorption with the polyelectrolyte PE-60 yielded 24 porcine enteroviruses and 3 porcine adenoviruses. A porcine enterovirus was isolated, following PE-60 concentration, from 1 to 6 slurry samples from a sow farrowing house. No virus was isolated from 12 samples of slurry from dairy cows nor from 6 slurry samples from a calf-rearing unit. A porcine enterovirus was isolated from soil samples, after concentration with PE-60, collected 1, 2 and 8 days after pig slurry was spread on hay stubble. Two porcine enteroviruses were isolated by membrane filtration from 26 samples of surface run-off from land on which pig slurry was routinely spread, and 2 bovine enteroviruses were isolated from cattle feedlot run-off after adsorption to layers of talc and celite followed by hydroextraction. A porcine enterovirus was also isolated from 1 of 33 samples of surface water collected on farms on which pig slurry was routinely spread on the land, but no virus was isolated from 36 samples of ground water from the same farms. The surface water and ground water samples were concentrated by talc-celite adsorption and hydroextraction.  (+info)

(2/331) Potential for reduction of odorous compounds in swine manure through diet modification.

Recent public concern about air pollution from pork production units has prompted more research to develop methods to reduce and control odors. Masking agents, enzymes and bacterial preparations, feed additives, chemicals, oxidation processes, air scrubbers, biofilters, and new ventilation systems have been studied. Research relating the effects of the swine diet on manure odors has been scarce. Introducing feed additives to bind ammonia, change digesta pH, affect specific enzyme activity, and mask odors has been either costly or not consistently successful. Recent research emphasis has focused on manipulating the diet 1) to increase the nutrient utilization of the diet to reduce excretion products, 2) to enhance microbial metabolism in the lower digestive tract to reduce excretion of odor-causing compounds, and 3) to change the physical characteristics of urine and feces to reduce odor emissions. Primary odor-causing compounds evolve from excess degradable proteins and lack of specific fermentable carbohydrates during microbial fermentation. Reductions in ammonia emissions by 28 to 79% through diet modifications have been reported. Limited research on reduction of other odorous volatile organic compounds through diet modifications is promising. Use of synthetic amino acids with reduced intact protein levels in diets significantly reduces nitrogen excretions and odor production. Addition of nonstarch polysaccharides and specific oligosaccharides further alters the pathway of nitrogen excretion and reduces odor emission. Continued nutritional and microbial research to incorporate protein degradation products, especially sulfur-containing organics, with fermentable carbohydrates in the lower gastrointestinal tract of pigs will further control odors from manure.  (+info)

(3/331) Limit-feeding corn as an alternative to hay reduces manure and nutrient output by Holstein cows.

Efficiency of limit-feeding a whole shelled corn-based diet as an alternative to a conventional forage-based diet for nonlactating dairy cattle was determined. Twelve nonlactating, multiparous Holstein cows (initial BW 642+/-50 kg) were used in a randomized complete block design. Nutrient digestibility, excretion of DM, N, and P, performance of cows, and feed costs were measured. Both diets were formulated to provide equal daily intakes of NE1, protein, vitamins, and minerals, according to National Research Council recommendations. Dry matter intake was restricted by 30% for cows fed the high-corn diet compared with the high-forage diet (6.8 vs 9.6 kg/ d, respectively); therefore, concentrations of nutrients in the high-corn diet were increased to compensate for decreased DMI. Diets were fed once daily, and cows had unlimited access to fresh water. After a 28-d adaptation period, cows were placed in metabolism stalls for a 6-d total collection of feces and urine. The limit-fed, high-corn diet had a 15% greater DM digestibility than the high-forage diet. A 29% decrease in DMI for the high-corn diet vs the high-forage diet resulted in a 40% decrease in fecal DM excretion. Starch digestibility and digestibility of whole corn kernels were not affected (P > or = .62) by diet. Despite similar N intakes, total N excretion was 22% greater (P < .01) for cows fed the high-forage diet than for those limit-fed the high-grain diet. Cow weight and condition score change did not differ (P > .10) between diets. Feed costs were reduced by $.38/d with the high-corn diet vs the high-forage diet. Limit-feeding a corn-based diet is an economically and nutritionally viable alternative to forage-based diets for nonlactating Holstein cows.  (+info)

(4/331) Conservation of nitrogen in cattle feedlot waste with urease inhibitors.

Feedlot cattle normally retain less than 20% of their dietary nitrogen intake. Sixty to 80% of the nitrogen excreted is normally lost through volatilization of ammonia, which is primarily generated from urea. This loss of ammonia nitrogen pollutes the environment and creates an unfavorable ratio of nitrogen to phosphorous (N:P) in the waste for crop growth. Two urease inhibitors, cyclohexylphosphoric triamide (CHPT) and N-(n-butyl) thiophosphoric triamide (NBPT) were evaluated for their ability to reduce the rate of urea hydrolysis in beef cattle feedlot pens. Initially, a total of six pens were used, two pens per treatment, with approximately 70 cattle per pen, and a single topical application of CHPT or NBPT at 20 mg/kg of manure. Essentially no urea was found in untreated pens. However, with CHPT treatment, 2 g of urea/kg of dry manure accumulated by d 4, and all gradually disappeared by d 11; NBPT conserved 3 and 3.5 g of urea/kg by d 4 and 9, respectively, and it had disappeared by d 14 (treatment [trt] x day, P = .003). A second study involved application of NBPT weekly for 6 wk. This caused urea to accumulate to a peak concentration of 17 g/kg of manure by d 30 (trt x day2, P = .001). Once the treatment was stopped the urea concentration began to decrease. When the NBPT was applied weekly, the concentration of ammonia in the waste was less for the treated pens (trt x day, P = .01), the total nitrogen was greater (trt x day, P = .04), pH tended to be lower (trt x day, P = .10), and the total volatile acids were not different (trt x day, P = .51) from untreated pens. We concluded that urease inhibitors could be used to control ammonia emissions from animal wastes, prevent environmental damage, and produce a more balanced (N:P) fertilizer from manure.  (+info)

(5/331) Effects of anaerobic digestion and additives to effluent or cattle feed on odor and odorant concentrations.

Odor intensity (5,437 observations), determined by human panelists (100 different panelists over the course of the experiment), and a number of chemical odorant concentrations were determined for manure-related samples (326) obtained from effluents from conventional stirred-tank reactor (CSTR) and fixed-film anaerobic digesters, effluents to which commercial additives or KMnO4 or H2O2 were added, and feces, urine, and mixed manure from cows fed a control or additive-containing diet. Mostly, samples were held in stoppered, Erlenmeyer flasks for 3 d at room temperature before evaluation by panelists and with chemical analyses, but shorter holding times also were tested. Anaerobic digestion reduced odor intensity linearly with increasing hydraulic retention time (HRT) up to 20 d; fixed-film digestion with 1.5- or 2.3-d HRT reduced odor intensity similarly to that observed with 10-d HRT in CSTR. Addition of commercial products and chemicals altered some odorant concentrations (e.g., ammonia) but did not reduce odor intensity; some products increased odor intensity. Addition of a commercial yeast-based product to a dairy cow diet had no detectable effect. The cow diet study showed that fresh urine and feces alone were less odorous than a mixed combination (manure). Fresh manure was less odorous than manure held for 3 d. Total phenol was the odorant most highly correlated with odor intensity. Individual and total volatile fatty acids also contributed. Ammonia did not seem to be a major contributor to odor in this data set.  (+info)

(6/331) Method for detection and enumeration of Cryptosporidium parvum oocysts in feces, manures, and soils.

Eight concentration and purification methods were evaluated to determine percentages of recovery of Cryptosporidium parvum oocysts from calf feces. The NaCl flotation method generally resulted in the highest percentages of recovery. Based on the percentages of recovery, the amounts of fecal debris in the final oocyst preparations, the relatively short processing time (<3 h), and the low expense, the NaCl flotation method was chosen for further evaluation. Extraction efficiency was evaluated by using oocyst concentrations of 25, 50, 10(2), 10(3), 10(4), and 10(5) oocysts g of bovine feces-1. The percentages of recovery ranged from 10.8% (25 oocysts g-1) to 17.0% (10(4) oocysts g-1) (r2 = 0.996). A conservative estimate of the detection limit for bovine feces is ca. 30 oocysts g of feces-1. Percentages of recovery were determined for six different types of animal feces (cow, horse, pig, sheep, deer, and chicken feces) at a single oocyst concentration (10(4) oocysts g-1). The percentages of recovery were highest for bovine feces (17. 0%) and lowest for chicken feces (3.2%). Percentages of recovery were determined for bovine manure after 3 to 7 days of storage. The percentages of recovery ranged from 1.9 to 3.5% depending on the oocyst concentration, the time of storage, and the dispersing solution. The percentages of oocyst recovery from soils were evaluated by using different flotation solutions (NaCl, cold sucrose, ZnSO4), different dispersing solutions (Triton X-100, Tween 80, Tris plus Tween 80), different dispersion techniques (magnetic stirring, sonication, blending), and different dispersion times (5, 15, and 30 min). Twenty-five-gram soil samples were used to reduce the spatial variability. The highest percentages of recovery were obtained when we used 50 mM Tris-0.5% Tween 80 as the dispersing solution, dispersion for 15 min by stirring, and saturated NaCl as the flotation solution. The percentages of oocyst recovery from freshly spiked sandy loam, silty clay loam, and clay loam soils were ca. 12 to 18, 8, and 6%, respectively. The theoretical detection limits were ca. 1 to 2 oocysts g of soil-1 depending on the soil type. The percentages of recovery without dispersant (distilled H2O or phosphate-buffered saline) were less than 0.1%, which indicated that oocysts adhere to soil particles. The percentages of recovery decreased with storage time, although the addition of dispersant (Tris-Tween 80) before storage appeared to partially prevent adhesion. These data indicate that the NaCl flotation method is suitable for routine detection and enumeration of oocysts from feces, manures, soils, or soil-manure mixtures.  (+info)

(7/331) Biomass cooking fuels and prevalence of tuberculosis in India.

OBJECTIVES: To examine the relation between use of biomass cooking fuels (wood or dung) and prevalence of active tuberculosis in India. METHODS: The analysis is based on 260,162 persons age 20 and over in India's 1992-93 National Family Health Survey. Logistic regression is used to estimate the effects of biomass fuel use on prevalence of active tuberculosis, as reported by household heads, after controlling for a number of potentially confounding variables. RESULTS: Persons living in households that primarily use biomass for cooking fuel have substantially higher prevalence of active tuberculosis than persons living in households that use cleaner fuels (odds ratio [OR] = 3.56; 95% confidence interval [CI] = 2.82-4. 50). This effect is reduced somewhat when availability of a separate kitchen, house type, indoor crowding, age, gender, urban or rural residence, education, religion, caste or tribe, and geographic region are statistically controlled (OR = 2.58; 95% CI = 1.98-3.37). Fuel type also has a large effect when the analysis is done separately for men (OR = 2.46; 95% CI = 1.79-3.39) and women (OR = 2. 74; 95% CI = 1.86-4.05) and separately for urban areas (OR = 2.29; 95% CI = 1.61-3.23) and rural areas (OR = 2.65; 95% CI = 1.74-4.03). The analysis also indicates that, among persons age 20 years and over, 51% of the prevalence of active tuberculosis is attributable to cooking smoke. CONCLUSIONS: Results strongly suggest that use of biomass fuels for cooking substantially increases the risk of tuberculosis in India.  (+info)

(8/331) Quantification of syntrophic fatty acid-beta-oxidizing bacteria in a mesophilic biogas reactor by oligonucleotide probe hybridization.

Small-subunit rRNA sequences were obtained for two saturated fatty acid-beta-oxidizing syntrophic bacteria, Syntrophomonas sapovorans and Syntrophomonas wolfei LYB, and sequence analysis confirmed their classification as members of the family Syntrophomonadaceae. S. wolfei LYB was closely related to S. wolfei subsp. wolfei, but S. sapovorans did not cluster with the other members of the genus Syntrophomonas. Five oligonucleotide probes targeting the small-subunit rRNA of different groups within the family Syntrophomonadaceae, which contains all currently known saturated fatty acid-beta-oxidizing syntrophic bacteria, were developed and characterized. The probes were designed to be specific at the family, genus, and species levels and were characterized by temperature-of-dissociation and specificity studies. To demonstrate the usefulness of the probes for the detection and quantification of saturated fatty acid-beta-oxidizing syntrophic bacteria in methanogenic environments, the microbial community structure of a sample from a full-scale biogas plant was determined. Hybridization results with probes for syntrophic bacteria and methanogens were compared to specific methanogenic activities and microbial numbers determined with most-probable-number estimates. Most of the methanogenic rRNA was comprised of Methanomicrobiales rRNA, suggesting that members of this order served as the main hydrogen-utilizing microorganisms. Between 0.2 and 1% of the rRNA was attributed to the Syntrophomonadaceae, of which the majority was accounted for by the genus Syntrophomonas.  (+info)


What kinds of food do they fertilize using pork manure?


I just found out that pork manure (really disgusting) is used as a fertilizer on many different things grown right here in the U.S.
I'd like to know what exactly are those things grown using pig manure?
----------

Any crop being grown within economical transportation distance of the source. Is there a problem with pig manure over other kinds. Many large pig farms store it in tanks where it is partially broken down by bacteria and then applied as liquid fertilizer. Very high in Nitrogen.
Edit: It's pig manure. Pigs are not pork until they are ready to eat!


Where are the "purist" vegetarians supposed to get the manure for their organic farms?


I have seen estimates of up to 21 tons of manure per acre.
----------

There is a movement within the vegan community that advocates "Veganic Gardening".  Essentially using composted animal-free organic matter and things like spirulina and liquid feeds like nettle and comfrey.  

It's some pretty interesting stuff....I've included 2 links about it :)


How do you properly clean mushrooms considering they are covered in dirt and manure?


Okay, so I know that mushrooms grow in manure and they usually have a nice amount of debris on them when you buy them in the package.  I've been told that you are not supposed to get them wet or they will soak up the water like a sponge and get ruined.

So, how the heck are you supposed to clean them to get the manure off?  If I'm not mistaken, manure causes ecoli (similar to the recent spinach outbreak).
----------

Rinse them off.

Most mushrooms are grown in compost, which may or may not have manure in it.  But cow manure has to be pasteurized (as in previous post) or well-rotted (which will kill off harmful bacteria) before you use it.

And don't eat them cow-flop mushrooms.  Yuck.

So rinse them off.  Don't soak them...just rinse them.

Dry them off...moisture gone.

If you pick your own (if you're good at recognizing edible ones, that is...get a book or an expert!) you can just throw them in the pan.

But leave the wild ones to those who know which to eat.


Is eating fruits and veggies fertilized with manure vegan?


Would eating a fruit or veggie fertilized with manure be vegan?  If not, what in the world can a vegan eat?
----------

That depends upon the practice.    
The farm that I purchase from does a neat little rotation which I am completely okay with.
They use chickens and cows, what happens is they first bring the chickens  out to pasture.   The chickens will graze, eat the grubs and poop to fertilize the soil.

Then they will plant.

They do not use imported hives, instead they attract bees using small fragrant gardens intermixed with their crops.

After the havest the bring on the cows to graze.  

They have a constant cycle of several very large fields which they do this too.

This is an extremely old farming practice, and although the animals are captive they lead a pretty decent life just walking around  in open space eating an pooping.


Does anyone know if there is a difference with organic and non-organic chicken manure?


I want to use it for my vegetable garden in pots?  Also what is the best way to use the chicken manure in potted plants?
----------

I don't think there is a huge difference. i have used both. 

With non organic you would get residues of antibiotics but not hormones as they are not used in the chicken industry (that explosive growth with the meat birds is done without drugs and the organic birds grow just as fast) and the non organic birds are fed feed that uses GMO's. But I would not worry about herbicides or other pesticides being in the litter hurting your plants.

It is a lot easier to find conventional chicken manure than organic as the majority of organic poultry is pastured and thus the manure is never collected because it goes straight onto the ground

The best way to use chicken manure is use it  only after it has been well composted for at least 9 months. Otherwise it will be way too "hot" (meaning too much nitrogen) for your plants and will burn and probably kill them. Mix the composted chicken manure with potting soil. i would start with no more than 10% chicken manure but if things do well than increase the compost Content to up to 50%, unless you have flowering plants. Than you may want to use another kind of manure as chicken manure, even composted is high in nitrogen and if flowering plants get too much N they will grow a lot of foliage but not many flowers (for that they need P&K)


Do Vegans (or vegetarians) have a problem with vegetables grown with manure?


I ask this question because even though manure is organic, manure only exists in large quantities because of the existence of the beef and dairy industry.   I would think that would kind run contrary to the tenets of your cause.

ROFLMAO!!!!! Love it!!!! Just freaking love it!


What do the different colors of urine and manure mean?


I am not trying to be funny im am very serious....
what does green, brown, black, and dark brown colors of manure mean? 

also the darkness and lightness of urine...

this is a health question and i am very serious about this question so please do not act childish
----------

Typically, the healthier you are, the lighter your urine color.

What does it mean if you see a dark yellow urine color? Typically, this is a sign that you are not drinking enough water

A light yellow urine color typically signifies a very healthy urine

There are many foods that may cause an orange urine color.
Blackberries can give your urine orange hue.
Beets may give your urine a red or orange urine color.
Rhubarb can cause an orange urine color as well.

Poop is mostly shades of brown or yellow, but other colors can arise under certain circumstances. For example, someone with a bleeding ulcer might have tarry black poop from the presence of partially digested blood. Bleeding in the intestine, from an anal fissure or split, for example, can stain the poop red. Bloody poop can also be a sign of colon cancer, so you should get it checked out by a doctor if you see blood in your stool. Some illnesses in babies gives them green or even blue-green poop. But another source of blue poop in children is more innocent: it can come from eating a concentrated source of blue food coloring such as ice cream. Intense red food coloring can produce bright red poop. Sometimes brightly colored foods pass through the gut almost unchanged, and the turd may be speckled with bright red fragments such as pimentos, or bright yellow kernels of corn. 
    Poop can also be stained red if you eat beets.
