tomorrow morning i plan to go out of town to plant spores on a cow pasture in the hills, i plan to put spores in cow patties, and a little on grass(food source for cows) i will not be keeping track of the spores, and when my friend "there" sees shrooms(i have seen shrooms growing there before just not the blue ones) he will call me to go identify, i was wondering if anyone had any advice seeing as im improvising what i am doing, i would appreciate it

Just 'feed' some to the cows. Get an apple a slice it up and put a little of the spores on it then give 'em a snack. Then they will go forth and shit cakes.

The thing about the cows eating the spores is that they are processed with what will become the substrate. Bovines are one of very few animals that have no stomach acids, so the spores will not be damaged by the trip.

Monkey's apple idea seems like the ticket... just think of the patties from the lucky apple eaters as gooey cakes, waiting to fruit!

iknow the apple trick i think i was talking to someone about this befor on here? any how it's called seeding the cow and im pretty sure it takes alot more than just one trip threw befor it will actually work try feeding the same cow apples for a week straight! i have heard reports that it can take up to a year to seed a single cow? but i do know the apple will work just how long it takes is the mystery!! keep us posted cause im anxious to see myself how things come out for you!!

Would contaminated syringes/prints work? Could I just pick all a buncha shrooms, then sporulate all the spores onto one big piece of paper, then add them to their food?

The PETA people are going to call for my hide, but you can feed spore prints from contamed cakes to cows. You have my blessing.

Would the fresh green bovine droppings be to "hot" chemically to support growth?

That's a "shit load" of nitrogen! (sorry)
