I just got a trailer full of free goat poo! cheers It was advertized on Freecycle by a family-run, certified grade B goat farm that produces milk for area cheesemakers. The poo was in a big pile ready to be shoveled and hauled away. It has already over-wintered so should be ready for use but I'm adding it to my compost piles (one almost ready and one just started). And my goodness - it looks like I've got enough to last for quite a while - and I didn't even take it all! The poo does have some straw in it and they sprinkled lime on it occasionally over the winter - but as far as I know that's all good stuff. It's a lot of work shoveling it out of the trailer because a lot of it is in chunks. I am chopping up the chunks with a shovel before putting it in the compost. It's worth it though because it's free and I figure would have cost me a bundle if I'd tried to buy it - especially as much as I got. So I'm one happy Square Foot Gardener!!!

I remember how excited I was when i got a free trailer load of alpaca manure last year. I added some of the "fresher" stuff to my compost pile, used some of the composted part in my beds, and left the rest. Over the weekend (its been almost a year) I went back to the pile and had very nice compost ready to use (about a wheel barrow full give or take). The farmer told me that his tomatos did amazingly well with it, so midsummer I'll use it as a side dressing.

Too Kewl! I know how it feels. A nurse my son works with has told him to come help himself to all the goat poo he can haul. I'm still waiting. Happy for you.

Thanks for the vote of confidence. Actually, it's my husband who thinks I'm weird for being excited about goat poo. But to his credit, he did haul the trailer over there and helped me with the shoveling.

In some ways, gardening changes our priorities as profoundly as becoming a parent. You're weird to those with clean hands! But not to us with dirt under our nails, who are happy for you clap

I told my hubby about the alpaca poo when I read it on 'the most thoughtful gardening gift' thread and he thought that was crazy - but he walked around saying 'alpacapoo, alpacapoo' for the next 2 days! I am thrilled that I have sources for free horse poo, cow poo, and poultry poo! Hubby thinks I am crazy, too!

I am really excited for you and your goat poo!! We have goats and we have friend who loves to come over and clean our goat pens for free poo for her garden. She got a couple of pack goats from us this past year so now she is manufacturing her own goat poo. Right now I need to get it all cleaned up and put into the compost pile.

I love the husband walking around muttering "alpacapoo, alpacapoo" for days. That cracks me up!!

I have a source for free Emu poo also but haven't gone to get it yet. I need to get on the ball! I'm assuming Emu poo would be like chicken manure. Does anyone know?

I think it helped him to see that there are others like me and that I am not some sort of alien for liking to dig in the dirt, get excited about poo, and enjoy the sunshine!
