    HI,
    My BIL wants to keep a pig in our barn. I think its a neat idea, but the DW is concerned about the manure. Not knowing anything about pigs, what do you do with the manure? We have lots of space so can it just be piled up, composted and used in the garden?
    Thanks,

    Yup, exactly as stated. :) Also, doesn't smell much if you don't have alot of pigs per space. :)

    I use it directly on the garden in the fall thru spring. In the late spring/summer I compost it since the plants are up. Sidedress with the compost.
