    Okay, more questions! I may have a source for pig and possibly goat poop. How is this for vermicomposting. I may also be able to set up at this site, so I could be up and running with a nice little operation....if the pig poop works!

    I never thought I would see a thread like this one but will be curious to see where it goes. I lived on a farm and raised hogs for the first 20 years of my life. Hog s!@# grows good corn and beans when knived into the ground!!!

    pig poo is nasty
    how do they handle it?
    how wet is it when you get it?
    is there a place you can compost it for a while first?

    From what I understand, the farmer already is composting it and giving it away to local gardeners. If any poop will work, then I guess that free poop is the best poop huh?!

    In the city, that's big business. In my region, large companies try to monopolize by acquiring rights to contract w/ sewer treatment facilities, farm waste, city leaf humus, and just about anything else that is organic that will rot. They convert into their "special" soil blends, and sell it back.

    I would agree sounds like the farmer don't know what he got if he is giving it away. Pig poo is also high in methane gas:laugh::dizzy:; which can be used to power his farm, and worth$$$$
