Bone Meal - Probably off topic

I'm just now getting to finish the fall issue of The Bulb Garden and Ms. Richardson makes note of the fact that she considers "modern" bone meal generally useless as bulb fertilizer.

Can anyone tell me why?  I was given a 50-lb sack of 20 to 30-year-old bone meal last summer that was sealed tight and seems to be working well, thank you.  Now I'm dying of curiosity.

Also does anyone use Lilly Miller's 10-10-10 all-purpose with trace minerals, described as 4-6 week release, and if so, how has it performed for them?
