Manure management practices in Iowa will be the topic of a clinic Aug. 28-29 at the Field Extension Education Laboratory near Ames, Iowa. The Iowa Manure Management Action Group and IowaStateUniversity's College of Agriculture and Life Sciences will present the clinic designed to train service providers, commodity partners, agency personnel and Extension field staff on manure management issues. Producers also are welcome to attend the clinic.

Angela Rieck-Hinz, ISU Extension program specialist says, “this program will include a regulatory update, but will help participants go beyond regulatory issues to look at emerging issues in manure management.” Other topics will include trends in feed management, livestock facilities, on-farm mortality composting, meeting no-till requirements with injected manure application, and pathogens and antibiotics in manure.

Class size is limited to 60 people and pre-registration is required. Registration information and clinic agenda can be found online.
