We're not sure what you mean by mix. You do need to let manure "age" 6 months to a year before using in a food garden. Just turn the pile once in a while. Put it in a compost bin to age faster. And if you do mix in some carbons such as straw, it will cook faster. You'll know when it's aged as it gets powdery.
