one year i had carrots as big as my forearm, but the manure had tons of unprocessed hay seed. If you can get it free, go for it and let us know.

So Hyphae,
How did you break up that goat poo? All those little jellybeans! LOL!

Reason I'm asking is because I have ready access to some and I've been wondering how to break it up. Run through a leaf blower/ vac?

Also have ready access to deer, elk, alpaca, and elephant dung. Thus far, I prefer to use cow or horse dung.

After soaking and pasturizing the goat dookie is fluffed up and breaks apart easily, like horse manure. When I use the pillowcase method of pasturizing I like to stand on the sack after and even put a board on it and stand on it. This ends up pulverizing the soaked/pastured poo.

To run manure through the leaf blower it would need to be quite dry, not so hard on a stretch of sunny days or with a fan blowing on it. If used damp the unit gums up and must be cleaned between bag loads. Using wet material can screw up the machine to by getting electronics wet. In either case I use straw to clean the machine. After scooting out the clumps of wet manure the straw totally polish cleans it inside. I guess it scrapes the gunk off everywhere.

Thanks man!

I use the blower/ vac on horse and cow poo but my supply is usually nice and dry. The goat poo is pretty recent so I'll be using your method. I usually shred the poo prior to pasteurization but, if you aren't having problems......that's good enough for me.

i posted this thread intending to try different poo's.. so i went and got some free product from a friend that has had a well established farm and mules living on the pastures for many yrs.. i used some without any success due to my moisture content being off. haven't got the field capacity quite figured out yet.. well to my amazement today i look into the bag that has been sitting for a few weeks.. i thought i saw some growth but chalked it up to bacteria or mold.. all natural growth i didn't add anything to this poo..

Those are inky caps - coprinunus (sp?) something or other. I just call em inky's because the caps will turn to black goo very quickly.

They are common in dung substrates taken right from the outdoors.

i always love to learn something different

Psilocybe cubensis is a species of psychedelic mushroom whose principle active compounds are psilocybin and psilocin. Psilocybe cubensis belongs to the Strophariaceae family of fungi and was previously known as Stropharia cubensis. The mushroom's cap is reddish-cinnamon brown to golden brown in color with white to yellowish stipe and will turn bluish/greenish when bruised.[1]

The inky cap mycelium is clearly visible. By having it in garbage bags you are giving near perfect conditions for its spread. Even if you kill it via pasteurization its corpse will be a contam vector. Best bet is to lay that out in the hot sun on a dark tarp. Bust it up the best you can and sun bake it dry.


Soon you will have 100 % colonized coprinus plus more spores on the way.

Bake it danno...
