At the very least you do have to return the ashes to the field.tcmtech said:Should I till under a field and let it decay back into the soil or should I harvest everything above the ground and then process it and get every bit of use and energy out of it before returning the ashes to the field?
Either way the net energy gets returned to the cycle. I just borrowed some of it for my needs.
Giving the horse an interesting roll of waist management when you say the organisms needed to break it down and then are deposited outside the gut to further the cause of increased biomass production.Ugh horses.

An animal that can poop 10 times it own weight in a year while only eating 9 times its own weight in food gets an over unity award from me!
(Hay is dry, manure is wet. a horses digestive system only takes a tiny fraction of the nutrients and energy from what it eats so there is almost no weight loss from absorbsion of material.)
Whoa.Now Canada consumes 65 % of the coffee imported into North America. Canada is only 1/10 the size of the U.S.
