I don't know of any reason to not use it. They are herbivores, so it should be well enough to use

I agree, moose manure is probably wonderful stuff... reminds me of an old joke though...

A Scotsman paying his first visit to the zoo stopped by one of the cages.
"An' whut animal would that be?" he asked the keeper.
"That's a moose from Canada," came the reply.
"A moose!" exclaimed the Scotsman, "Hoots! They must ha' rats like elephants over there!"

Love it!!

And I would use moose manure in the compost heap. If I didn't make jewellery out of it that is.

I really never thought I'd laugh out loud in a moose manure post. Good stuff.

I sure needed a good laugh and got it thanks fiddleman. I have looked the NPK values of common animals over, being in farm country a lot is available here. But moose don't visit Iowa all that often. We do get to follow a stray one in the news every few years though. I Googled fertilizer values of MP and from your university site found this info.
"Moose droppings have the following fertilizer equivalent values during the months of May and June: moisture ,74 percent; nitrogen, 2.5 percent; phosphate (P205), 1.8 percent; potassium (K20), 1.2 percent; zinc, 0.6 percent; calcium, 1.6 percent; and magnesium, 0.7 percent. The nutrient values for moose droppings during the winter months is less than 50 percent of the summer values."
That is some pretty hot stuff compared to any other animals listed, their web site is here.
http://www.uaf.edu/ces/publications-db/catalog/anr/LPM-00340.pdf
This could be some great high octane poop but think a call to the extension office for handling advice mite be in order.
The laughter will hold me for many days.
