What is the best manure to use, or does it really matter? I have access to cow, horse and goat manure. Also I am able to get "used" straw.

You are a very lucky person Dorothy to have such an abundance of natural manures. Go for it, but may I suggest you add some sulfate of potash for helping the flowering and fruiting stages.Your animal manures are brilliant but lack sufficient quantities of potash. Good luck,and healthy satisfying gardening.
Cheers Bill T. :)

horse manure

I live near a horse corral that advertises...Free manure help yourself. Is this a good thing to mix into your garden with some potash mixed in?

Need a little more help about Horse manure
by: Crystal, Central Oregon

were if live the county does an exchange program were they put you in touch with ranchers for free manure. My question is that I heard that horse manure has too much urine with it cause of the cleaning of stalls but around here most of it comes from pastures is this any better? I also have access to alpaca manure would that be better than horse manure and why or why not?
