Anyone have an opinion about using goat manure mixed with hay for compost in the garden?

It's a great fertilizer! It's not as hot as some other manures like chicken or horse.
So, can I just work it in around plants. I thought I would do that and then put straw over that for mulch.
Just make sure it is well composted first. When I used some horse manure mixed with hay a couple of years ago, it was weedy due to the hay mixture.
I agree with both Rachel and Annie. Let it cure before using and be careful of grass seeds from the hay.
What if it has been sitting curing in the pasture for some time, probably to a depth of six to eight inches. After I move it, should I still compost it for awhile?
Well I think the test is what form it is in. If it is black friable dirt, by all means use it. But if it still has recognizable hay or other plant forms, it could still have viable seeds.
