I am closing on 6 acres withing a couple weeks. It has an old tobacco barn. One side was used for cattle at some point as the ground is covered in old cow patties. This is about a 45' x 15' area. The house has been vacant for about 8 years. What should I do with this old cow manure? Mix it into a compost pile with dry leaves and fresh cut yard waste? Is it okay to use? Should I be concerned with it at all?
The Enemy of progress is the hope of a perfect plan
Carbon is good. Aged carbon is all the better. Aged carbon that once came out of a cows butt --- the best.
Are you concerned about medications that the cows may have been taking? I would imagine that even if the cows were on meds, after it's aged in the sun and rain, there wouldn't be much left to be concerned about.
