ive been composting my mrnuae for 3 years and never had a problem. what i do is put it in a pile in the sun, as far away from animals and buildings as possible, feed my horses a feed through fly eliminator (it doesnt kill flies, but repels them with garlic and a few other things, as well as it makes it so eggs laid in the poo die and never survive to hatch). i stir it up every month with a tractor, and after about 6-8 months the bottom layer is beautiful black dirt. in particularly hot and dry periods, ill water it so it doesnt dry out too much. i dont do anything other than those steps.if you’re using it on delicate plants and things like ph level are crucial, this probably isnt the method for you. but i find for the majority of things, the less messing you do with it, the better it usually ends up.
