Is it safe to grow tortoise food with cow manure?

Yes! I got composted cow manure and just wanted to double check! It’s safe?
You’re fine. That stuff is “usually” ran through a processing plant where it’s roasted/heated to kill any seeds/grains, etc that are still in there. You will be fine.

As long as the tortoise doesn't have direct access to the product, its fine.

Personally I like earthworms & nightcrawlers & their casings, but that's just me.
