Q.How To Compost Pig Manure

Zone 56142 | Anonymous added on August 9, 2023 | Answered

I read your instructions how to compost pig manure. When your get to the part to cover the pile for winter to let it finish cooking before the snow falls, does it really decompose any in the dead of winter? I live in MN our winters are long and cold snd I want to make sure it is for sure safe to use in the spring. Thank you!
