Best manure per $ of feed
I think the only way we can get enough manure and know it is safe and residue free is to keep animals just to produce it
so I was hoping to get some feedback on which animals are the best value in terms of how much they eat compared to the nuritional value of their poo
we will have to hand feed mainly with a little green pick ( not much really )
we are getting at least 1 dairy goat but goat manure seems hard to collect
we have 7 chooks and the chook tractor is nearly finished but I dont think they will work fast enough
we have pigeons which we got given and I know pigeon poo is supposed to be good but again it takes so long to get enough
The old horse used to keep the garden going but horse poo is not that good and I heard horses need a lot more feed to maintain them that say a cow ........
and horses are hard on the land especially this sandy soil
we went and looked a Dexter yesterday but they are so expensive to buy and really I dont know much about cows except how to work them on horseback as in campdrafting and cutting :lol: :lol:
any advice gratefully accepted :lol:
Only after the last tree has been cut down,
only after the last river has been poisoned,
only after the last fish has been caught.
only then will you find
that money cannot be eaten"
