Is cow manure the only type of manure that can be used to fertilize asparagus ? Can manure from other animals also be used ?

Please read thru this Soil Amendments publication for a list of other animal manures that are able to be used. Any manure used should be properly aged.

Here is our Asparagus page, which suggests how to use composted manure:
