Iowa Beef Center releases new environmental publication

by Wendy Miller, Iowa Beef Center

The Iowa Beef Center recently made available a new publication dealing with an environmental management structure no open feedlot owner can be without. Solutions for Open Feedlot Operators - Solid Settling Basin Design (PM 1909) helps producers plan, design, build, and manage solid settling basins for open feedlots. All open feedlots in Iowa are required to settle solids before effluent is discharged, regardless of lot size or number of animals. Building a settling basin is fairly easy and can be inexpensive, but there are a number of factors, such as access and manageability that producers must take into consideration.

To order this publication, contact ISU Extension Distribution Center at (515) 294-5247. A single copy of this 4-page publication is free. Or view the online publication at the Iowa Beef Center Web site at www.iowabeefcenter.org
