    Would you use them?? I know what they are, The industry says there safe, But are they.My brother used to work in A plant that processed them. I think it can best be used to make sod. for the Gold courses. And the turf industry. But to grow food. I Am unsure about that,I would worry about the heavy metals myself. And then theres the Biological vectors. In The state of Miss. they pay you to let them apply it to your fields. Would you let them???

    Not a chance. How horrible. There are other methods. I keep poultry and that is more than enough. Surely someone near you has cattle?
    I don't think it's so bad if used on nursery crops, golf courses and other non-edible plantings, but not food.
