A lady that raises Alpacas gave me 3 bags of manure. She told me it was great fertilizer and that I could use it directly on my garden without having to compost it or cure/age it. Seems a lot of sources say the same thing. I have heard from a few other people not to use it until it is composted because we will get sick from the bacteria in it. I am very new to gardening and am wondering if I should use this now. Any advice?
