I am starting a compost pile and have heard that the best ones are 20% animal waste. What do most people use for animal waste that don't have many animals? I just have a small terrier dog.

Thanks,

Comet

I think they are usually talking about livestock manure. Do you live near a cattle ranch or a horse stable?

I'm a big horse poop fan myself! My compost is about 75% horse manure/sawdust, 25% leaves, grass clippings, and food scraps.

You can make great high nutritious compost without using animal manures, if you really wanted to. All you got to do is get lots of high nitrogen organic nitrogen materials in your compost mixture.

Horses eat grass, hay, and feeds. Horse feeds are made from alfalfa, corn, oats, and dry molasses. So you could bypass the farm animal, and just put grass, hay, dry molasses, cattle, horse, or rabbit feeds in your compost piles for extra protein/nitrogen, calcium, and lots of micronutrients. It works great!

I also heat up, and speed up the aerobic microbial growth, for faster compost decomposition, just by pouring strong special homemade compost tea recipes, all over my compost piles. This mimics the strong high nitrogen urine and beneficial microbes in most fresh raw farm animal manures.
