The Difference between Horse Dung and Cow Dung
Cow dung contains 14.5% of the body, 0.30-0.45% of nitrogen, 0.15-0.25% of phosphorus, and 0.10-0.15% of potassium. The organic matter and nutrient content are lower in various livestock, the texture is fine, the water content is more, the decomposition is slow, and the calorific value is low, which is a late-acting fertilizer.
In cow dung, because of high water content, poor aeration, and organic matter is difficult to decompose, it is a cold fertilizer.
Horse manure contains 21% organic matter, 0.4-0.5% nitrogen, 0.2-0.3% phosphorus, and 0.35-0.45% potassium. The horse manure component contains a large amount of cellulose and hemicellulose, and further contains lignin, protein, fat, organic acid and various inorganic salts.
The moisture in the horse manure is easy to evaporate, and at the same time contains more fiber-decomposing bacteria, which is a hot fertilizer. The application of horse manure can improve the properties of the clay.
