The stall is easy to muck. Pick up the manure, which typically is coated with fine particulates--rather like chocolate truffles! Since the urine is concentrated in one spot and absorbed by the bedding, remove only the minimal amount of bedding--maybe one or two forkfuls. Wet areas will have no odor. If raked and allowed to air out, the wet spots will actually dry somewhat and do not have to be removed.
Don’t throw out the bedding unless it is badly soiled, which will take about four to six weeks. It is not necessary to add any bedding during the month. Virtually no bedding is wasted. Even heavily soiled Coco Bedding is almost odorless. When it is saturated, Coco Bedding emits an earthy aroma that it not unpleasant. Mucking the peat stalls takes one-half to one-third LESS TIME than with conventional bedding. You will see an immediate reduction in your compost pile, simply because you are throwing out less bedding.
