With environmental regulations becoming more strict, being well informed is key. Now, livestock producers in Iowa can go to a one-stop source for manure management information – the Iowa Manure Management Action Group Web site.

This state-level committee was formed in 1997 through the Natural Resources Conservation Service with representatives from private and public sector groups. These include the NRCS, Iowa Pork Producers Association, Iowa Farm Bureau Federation, Iowa Pork Industry Center, Iowa State University Extension and many others.

The goal of IMMAG is to identify and share manure management information and educational programs. To meet this need, IMMAG has established an electronic clearinghouse of resources for producers, technical agencies, educational institutions, researchers and the general public.
