Composting horse manure

by Sandy
(Midrand, Johannesburg)

Question:


I keep a couple of horses and a pony and therefore have quite a lot of horse manure. I have tried composting this in the usual way but find it time consuming and not really successful. But, my main concern is the number of FLIES this method encourages!!!

If there a way of composting the manure (which includes grass bedding material) by large-scale vermiculture I should be grateful for any information.

Answer:

Hello Sandy,thank you for your question! Worm composting or vermiculture can definitely help you to compost your horse manure. We have been using worms to convert horse manure for many years now.

It is quite simple and very rewarding. Have a look at the article I wrote on my website about the composting of horse manure with the help of earthworms. You will find it at

http://www.worm-composting-help.com/horse-manure.html

and it should get you a good idea how to go about it. To find out more detailed information and learn how you can even make some money by composting horse manure with compost worms you should have a look at my book

"How to start a profitable worm business on a shoestring budget."

It will be available at Amazon and can be ordered by email by the 18th of December 2013.
In the book you will learn simple techniques to convert horse manure and other organic materials into nutrient rich soil conditioners and plant food, raise lots of worms and make some money in doing so.

I wish you all the best for your worm composting project.

Kind regards and happy worming

Stephan
