Thanks Peter.  This is how this thread started: we use paunch manure from
the first unit, but it is a stinky job, and not super easy to transport.
This is only an issue as we are ramping our installations up to 5-10 per
week.  I was hoping to find a comparably effective method that maybe
cultured the same bacteria, or at least concentrated the stomach material.
Any thoughts?
