Goat manure as fertilizer: how to use
Is goat manure good for fertilizer? Goat manure, like sheep manure, is drier than cow manure or horse manure. It has less odor and is easier to work with and composts more quickly. Goat manure is higher in nitrogen than horse and cow manure. Using it instantly after being poop out is not advised. We need to compost it first. The preparation is very simple, you just need to dry it out completely. Dry it out in direct sunlight for a week, and store it in a cool place for another week. Doing this will speed up the process of composting. Prepare a screen to separate bigger poops. Getting only the fine manure will allow it to mix well with other soil without a high concentration. You can create a more efficient screen sieve, I’m too lazy.
I have two methods that I usually use in applying goat manure. First, mix it with coco peat for seed germination, it provides nutrients for proper growth of plants. Second, mix it as a major component ratio in your potting mix. I usually added 10% of goats manure in my mix. Third, you can easily make a goat manure tea for your plants using the fine ones. The bigger manure can be added to your compost if you have one. Or, you can grind this to make it finer, it’s not advisable to use directly as having too much nitrogen is not good.
