Gives us the option to do the research..
Not offended at all.
I don't mind at all when someone backs up their opinion or facts with research that we can use.
The point you made about maintaining the compost is an important one, the more materials you use in composting the more maintenance it will require. Farming has always involved using evey available material back in the earth to promote growth. But I have seen a compost heap with dog mess in it and it's a mosquito and flies pit. It also had mold all over it. I would hate to have to mess with it. Many people have good intentions then don't follow through. This is the reason for my earlier post. It's more work than most are willing to do. When a compost heap gets out of hand, cleaning it up could make you sick.
Thanks for giving us the option to do the research and see what is involved in using manure in compost. It's better to see someone elses mess than to find yourself in one
