Compost or Raw Manure?
A properly prepared Compost Manure is completely different than a Raw Manure!

Summary of The Three Stages of Composting:
  
    Oxygen Stage
When the windrow is formed microorganisms
consume oxygen (aerobic decomposition.)
As oxygen is used up aerobic decomposition
slows down. Aeration is provided by mechanical
turning to add oxygen and replenish pore space
within the settled medium.This promotes air
movement through the windrow.
  
    Temperature Stage
Temperature increases due to microbial activity
in the windrow.The temperature increases to
40-60  C and generally is maintained for several
weeks. As aerobic decomposition slows the
temperature drops off.
   
    Curing Stage
When the aerobic decomposition has slowed
the curing phase has begun.Oxygen usage is
so slow the windrows don't need to be turned
anymore. As the temperature drops to that of
ambient air the compost is done.
