What is wrong with using pig manure?



As long as it is composted properly there is nothing wrong with it. Some people think that there are pathogens in pig manure communicable to humans but I think that is a lot of hogwash.

Depends on which country you're in - there are still some parts of the world where animal hygiene is less than perfect (or where there are populations of wild/feral pigs) and pigs are part of the tapeworm life-cycle so there could be a risk of contamination.
Unlikely to be a problem in the UK. There might be a question over the benefits of pig manure - if it was any good then someone would have started marketing it.

I know pigs are actually clean animals but they do have a certain odour..., also they are omnivores
