Where to use COW POW?
How often should we use COW POW?
What do you do with your egg shells?
We collect them until we have enough supply for a container. We place them in a baking dish and into the oven (after it has been used for cooking) to dry the shells until dry. The shells are then crushed with a food processor or Thermomix, then added to our compost bin. They are used as shell grit for the chooks or add them to your compost or COW POW as a slow-release calcium supplemnt.
How to use the bags?
The handle is designed to make spreading the product easy. Just lie the bag down and open the end opposite the handle by snipping the loose end of the thread and pulling the thread out. Then pull the bag by the handle, spilling the contents in a line, then using a rake spread to the desired level. One bag can be used to cover up to 15 square meter of lawn. Can be used in heavier proportions with vegetables and ornamentals.
Will Cow Pow burn our plants?
Compared to other types of manure – Cow Manure is regarded as a ‘Cold Manure’, unlike other forms of animal manure such as Chicken that can sometimes ‘burn’ your precious veggies. All the time and effort cattle put into digesting their food through 4 stomachs means it is a lot less potent once it comes out the other end! Not only this but the composting process removes excess ammonia so there’s no risk of harming your much loved garden. If you want a product that can slowly build and nourish your soil, improve it’s microbial activity and get the best out of your plants, and doesn’t smell, start with a bag of Cow Pow.
