I'm new to the forum and new to vermicomposting! I went back and read through several pages of the archives looking for more info on using manure as bedding/food.
I learned that horse manure is awesome and the worms love it and that you don't need to use anything else. I learned that chicken manure and goat manure can also be used but the C:N ratio isn't as good as with horse manure.
I did not however find anything on using pig manure. Has anyone ever tried it?
We have both pigs and horses so I'm set either way but I was curious to know if anyone had used swine manure before. I'm thinking if works I may be able to compost on a much larger scale.
Also, if I am going to use horse manure and I use it in my 30 gl plastic bin, how deep should my initial layer be? I have both fresh and dried manure, should I mix it up or just use one or the other?
Thank you so much for all your help!
