Can You Compost Animal Pellet Bedding?

Yes, you can compost soiled and saturated animal pellet bedding. In fact, rotted horse, cow, chicken and other animal manure is one of gardeners’ favorite fertilizers. Rotted manure makes better fertilizer because the nutrients are more dense than in fresh manure. Additionally, the rotting process can make seeds and grasses in the manure less likely to sprout.

Horse and cow manure can become well rotted and ready for the garden by leaving it to compost. Some gardeners have found best results after leaving the manure and animal pellet bedding to compost for 6 months to a year.

You can easily stir manure and bedding pellets into your regular compost pile for good results. Others find a designated pile for manure and bedding pellets is best. Regardless, including some bedding pellets in with your manure pile can help the breakdown process and help control odor. And don’t forget those ashes from your wood pellet stove or boiler! Adding ashes early into the composting process will help balance pH values.
