Lyn ... I use 'field pickings' ... The droppings in bags... as an addition to the compost heap ... It really helps the other stuff in the compost to break down and make great compost.
Stable manure which nowadays is more likely to consist of droppings, wood shavings rather than straw , and urine, needs to be stacked for several months in order to break down and become less acidic before it's incorporated into the soil.
However as field pickings don't contain the acidic urine I would be happy to use it on your beds this autumn
