KFH2, I wouldn't recommend using fresh manure on growing plants. It really needs to be composted first and if it has straw in it, I'd say it isn't ready yet. Either make a compost heap with it or mix it in with your existing compost heap if you have one. By the end of the year it should be fine to use and you can spread it over your veg beds before the winter sets in.
