well it's unclear to me that we need manure to get rich soil ... why is plant composting not adequate?
different nutrients.

well yes, obviously.   yet forests flourish with primarily natural plant composting. 
.. & bugs, rhodents, snakes ....

well yes of course.  i use worms in my composting cans.  but the recommendation is not to put any animal scraps in the bins ... apparently the worms don't compost them quite so very well.  i truly am wondering if importing some manure might be a good idea ... i actually know of a free source ... but i remain unconvinced that is necessary.   i am seeking specific knowledge and experience here.
I don't claim expertise & would defer that to the Pfeiffer Biodynamic people.  I did do a science project in the 7th grade comparing the growth of a lima bean in compost of chicken shit etc to one with just normal soil.  It was inconclusive, but the teacher terminated the experiment claiming she did not like the smell of chicken shit in her classroom.
