is there a commercial organic compost that doesn't contain cow manure? i don't like the idea of growth hormones from the manure going into my plot.

There are numerous soil amendments and fertilizers that don't contain manures. Many products will list ingredients.

I mention both soil amendments and fertilizer because the nutrient levels in amendments/composts containing manure are often higher than in entirely plant-based amendments. If you are only concerned with cow manure, many products are made with other manures. Chicken manure is a richer source of nutrients than cow or horse manure.

Also recognize that the composting process breaks down many complex chemical compounds such as hormones. Raw manure and aged compost made from manure are quite different products.
