Hot, carefully monitored backyard composting can be an effective way to kill harmful pathogens present in animal manures.
To be certain of pathogen kill, the pile must reach temperatures of 130°F and the pile must be turned often to ensure that all regions of the pile get this hot. After each turn, the pile should reach 130° for three days. About five turns are necessary to assure pathogen kill.
