The Iowa Livestock Environmental Regulations handbook aims to keep livestock producers informed of current environmental regulations.
Now, the handbook chapters discussing livestock manure management regulations and construction requirements have been updated and posted to the Iowa Pork Producers Association Web site. More chapters will be added as they are completed.
“We strive to keep farmers educated and up to date on current regulations and to help them comply. This resource helps us do just that.” says Tyler Bettin, IPPA’s producer education director. “Producers are always welcome to call our office for personal assistance and questions regarding their operations.”
The handbook’s original creation was sponsored by IPPA, Iowa Cattlemen’s Association, Iowa Corn Growers Association, Iowa Dairy Products Association, Iowa Farm Bureau Federation, Iowa Poultry Association, Iowa Soybean Association and the Iowa Turkey Federation.
Handbook readers are reminded that information within the document is based on laws and regulations in effect at the time of publication. Producers are advised to stay informed of changes in these laws and to contact any of the sponsoring organizations for further information.
