for a pasture or garden,” says Caitlin Price Youngquist, PhD, a soil scientist

The Paso Poop Story at RDP -- Composting Basics
STABLES: RPD has 10 stalls with adjoining 12’ X 22' private paddocks, plus an overflow foaling/quarantine pen. As horses are wont to do, they eat all day, and produce the raw materials for our compost all night.
HORSE FACILITIES: Grass turn out areas, carefully rotated and irrigated to maintain green grass year round. The horse are on the pastures several hours a day. In addition they get high quality hay, wheat chaff, chia and flax seeds for their Omeaga 3s, and the underweight ones get a little bit of grain every morning and evening. These are the raw ingredients which become our compost.
COMPOSTING AREAS: Three composting bins have been set up, Each is covered and has permanent air tubes installed to ensure good air circulation. The stacks are monitored for temperature and moisture level for 6-9 weeks, until the material is fully composted.
PROCESSING: RDP has recently completed the fabrication of a custom built Paso Poop processing system. A lawn mower has been adapted to fully shred and grind the composted manure into consistent fertilizer / mulch / soil amendment product. Easy to apply. Looks great, does the job.
