[Market-farming] off farm compost, cow or chicken?

Anyone have suggestions on which product would be preferable for organic 
container mixes?  The chicken compost is done in a closed vessel, the 
cow compost is windrows on pavement.  The chicken is $3.60 more per yard 
and a bit further away.   I've used the chicken manure previously with 
good success; no viable seeds, fairly decent consistency.  I'm leaning 
towards going chicken again out of fears that the open windrowed compost 
could have more viable seeds in the mix.


thanks, sean albiston
