I'm lucky enough to have access Hpoo from different sources and am curious what the preference is. Is it better to use alfalfa cube poo or hay poo?

I'd go with the first one, looks real good. What's all the sticks in the second one about?

Depends if it's cubes or pans or stamps.
The first one for cubes
The 2nd for pans if that's straw in it

Thank you Sandman, the first one has a nice even consistency to it. The second one has straw mixed in it which for gardening is great!

Thank you Fungi2b, I figured the straw was a bonus. I'll have to get some more when the seal is broken on pans and other different dung lovers.

When I said stamps I ment tamps.
I have a pan Jamaican print I have never tried yet. Tamps were a lil hard for me so I assume I'll fail at pans till I can get so e decent tamp grows.

Do you see those nuggets in the 2nd picture that have a white coating? That's called firefang fungi and a sign that the horse manure is prime for use do to its age.

Firefang can be broken down by p.cubensis and utilized as a food source, this is why pasteurization is recommended to save the anti bacterial microbes (or whatever they're called)

I'd use the stuff in the 2nd pic, just chop up the digested hay to 1-2cm pieces and you've got yourself solid gold with that firefang.

Ripples, I don't think there are many difference's between alfalfa cube and bale hay at least not when it comes to Hpoo. For horse people, the cubes are more convenient but probably more $? The horses that produced the 2nd tub of poo also have access to grass fields for grazing. The bedding straw in the 2nd photo is an added bonus, great for the garden soil plus it soaks up some of the horse urine adding an extra kick.

Good eyes FunG, I can't wait to put this stuff to work!

FWIW Some additional info on this, not sure if
Organic vs GMO is a concern but it’s my understanding that most of not all alfalfa has been GMOd for use with “roundup” or glycophosphates and is typically sprayed with “cides” both pest and herb as it is a “value” crop. Grass hay on the other hand is generally just a cut and baled mixed grass field.

Good point Oneyedraven! Hopefully the poor horses process out the "cides" before it gets to me.
