fresh animal dung as a compost

15 years ago

I am using my donkeys' dung to make liquid fertilizer.

I gather it up in an old sheet which I tie up and soak in a plastic bin.

After I have done this a few times what is left is pretty anaemic but I wonder is it alright to use as potting material.

I am guessing that whatever it is that was bad for plants when it was fresh (doesn't it deplete the soil of nutrition?) may now have been disolved into the liquid fertilizer.

So maybe what is left may be great for planting ,say , spinach or runner beans into?

Separately when I cut the lawn very close I end up with pure mashed moss. Can this be used for anything special?
