This link should prove useful. This site contains various composting
forum archives dating way back - easily accessable (some posts from
The Compost Resource Page
Sawdust and shavings from most wood sources except the ones that decay
very slowly like cedar or locust are easily and quickly composted when
mixed with most any manure. I spent many years composting stable manure
with fresh, green pine sawdust bedding. Piled and turned properly it works
off in 4 to 8 months depending on moisture, ready for field application
and shallow-tilling into the soil.
A 40 hp tractor with loader or a skip loader is all that is required to
manage huge quantities of these materials and turn them into a valuable
soil amendment. The height and width of the pile will depend on the reach
of the loader. Catching catching silt and compost fines and nutrient rich
leachate that wash away from around the pile should be returned to the
pile periodically as they are rich in microorganisms needed to activate
the compost pile..
