As the livestock industry in the midwest undergoes rapid change, issues associated with the storage and land application of the manure have increasingly become a focus of public concern. Both USDA and Land Grant Universities have increased their efforts in addressing the concerns raised in recent years.
The Manure Distribution Field Day on August 28, will highlight many of the research efforts currently underway at the University of Nebraska, Iowa State University, and South Dakota State University. Manure storage systems, land application equipment, and odor control associated with livestock systems will be highlighted. You will be able to view displays and visit with personnel from the various universities and regulatory agencies, including Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality and various Natural Resources Districts.
Finally, while you're visiting the displays and enjoying the tours, fill up with a FREE lunch.
The Field Day is a cooperative effort between the Nebraska Water Center; the University of Nebraska, Iowa State University, and South Dakota State University Cooperative Extension; and the Papio-Missouri, Lower Elkhorn, and Upper Elkhorn Natural Resource Districts.
Major funding for the Field Day has been provided by the Nebraska Water Center, and the Papio, Lower Elkhorn and Upper Elkhorn Natural Resource Districts.
