This is one way...

Then there's the rotted cow poop way.

16 adult goats! Add 14 spring kids! Yeah, pastures get daytime sprinkles and shed the nightime ones. 🤣. Like rabbit poo...goat poo useable as delivered. Chickens everywhere..........7 mini horses add their pasture gold all over. There is ammonia in all. Nope. I don't buy, just shovel for garden. Do add lime some winters.

manures, compost, trench composting, mulch, wood ash, and i used to make aerated rabbit manure tea.


my idea is if your soil is healthy you dont need fertilizer, so i feed the soil.
Wood ash, my understanding it's a substitute for lime, used to raise the soil PH and aid in the breakdown of organic matter. Am I correct?

I've often heard goat poop called magic raisins. I would like some goats and sheep but will have to wait until this winter. I'm kind of burned out on building fencing for a while. Plus Bekaert Sheep and Goat 30 1348-4 12.5 ga 330' fence and 6 foot t-posts are crazy money right now.
