Things to know about sheep

What are the residues of a sheep's digestion?



Sheep's excrements

Many lambs, just as humans, are suffering from diarrhoea. As soon as we are grown-up, our excrements look like the ones depicted on the figure.
Incidentally, this is a formidable fertilizer. You can see (or better smell) this from the intensive odour reminding of ammonia. Ammonia consists mostly of nitrogen, which is an element that plants need for their growth.
Fresh excrements are quite soft, but can be dried. In dried form they can easily be broken up, thus making dosage during fertilization easier.
