MOO-NURE is a commercially sold manure product sold in bags like garden soil as a fertilizer and amendment for plants.


It has a Holstien cow on the bag.

Juhur7,
I have six 25 lb. bags in the garage. They are emitting an ammonia odor, which leads me to believe they are not quite finished composting. They've been there about 10 days, and the smell seems to be dissipating.

I bought them as an amendment to my new (2nd) raised bed that will be used this fall/wtr for my root crops. I've grown them before using Black Kow Composted Manure as an amendment, and they did very well with the rich organic amendment. I never got the ammonia odor with the BK, but then again, I didn't store it either. I used it almost immediately, before I learned that some of the composts might not be finished "cooking"...

In any case, I won't be sowing seeds in this bed until around the 1st of August, so the compost should be finished doing whatever it needs to do before then.

Linda

Thank you all for the replies! I was wondering about the direct use or tea question,I guess this means brewed tea and whats left goes in during the fall. I was "a" wondering. (it didn't smell or feel quite right to me either)
Seems like chores, "a many a thing ain't quite finished these days"

THANKS AGAIN!! and hope good gardening with the fall greens!!!

That is not to I like or dislike the product,I am looking around here for lids to a larger bucket to brew it in. At the moment I have a coffee can sitting in the driveway ,in that mean old hot sun we all love to no end,that is brewing that up for me, It is simmering mostly and boiling by afternoon.
Imagine that a solar moo-nure cooker! Only it is really unreasonable to expect anyone to be all that excited about a manure tea pile.!!!
