Can you help me with pig manure vermicomposting?

Asked September 15, 2014, 10:07 AM EDT

I am going to start raising pigs on my farm, but with the bad odor of pig manure I am unable to do that. I want to start with vermicompost using the pig manure and the earthworms. But I need a diagram or some photos and how to convert the pig manure. We stay in the forest where we do not have electricity, and the smell of the pig manure is very bad.

A great resource that includes some photos and information on vermicomposting pig manure is at Vermicomposting in North Carolina.

A good guide about worms, their care, and food sources can be found at Manual of On-Farm Vermicomposting and Vermiculture.

More resources can be found at Vermicomposting Animal Manure.

I hope these are helpful.
