In New York, "Burying is still allowable, but can be difficult because of the weather or geography," explained Jean Bonhotal, compost specialist with the Cornell Waste Management Institute, Department of Crop and Soil Sciences.
"We were asked to go to Brazil to teach mortality composting because they don't have a winter kill and they needed a way to reduce pathogens in the soil," Bonhotal said.

Compost specialist Jean Bonhotal advises the use of chunky materials for better air circulation, which helps in the composting process.
Composting at your farm
Composting is the microbial breakdown of organic matter to a more stable material and requires a proper carbon-to-nitrogen ratio. To achieve the proper ratio, Bonhotal said that animal spacing is key. "You are placing the animal in a carbon envelope, and air needs to get in to keep the microorganisms working," she explained.
Chunky materials work best because the air circulates better," Bonhotal explained. Use at least 2 feet of composting material for younger animals. Leave for four to six months. Remove any large bones before spreading compost on fields.
"We looked at barbiturates used in euthanasia drugs, and those are breaking down in composting," Bonhotal noted. "Wormer [ivermectin] is breaking down pretty well in the environment," she added.
