Right, you don't have to compost it, I read that.. but what I am wondering, is because I have really acid soil that I am trying to fix, is the acidity of the pine shavings going to mess that up? because I also read that the acidity changes after it is composted. or are the pine shavings not that big of a deal if it is already partially broken down? or because it is mixed with the manure, does that change it enough?
