IMMAG Resources

by Rachel Klein, Department of Agronomy

The Iowa Manure Management Action Group (IMMAG) serves as a print, Web, and hands-on (field days) resource for manure management information and education. The Web site consists of a clearinghouse devoted to providing information to individuals concerned with manure management. From publications, research reports, and current news to educational materials, IMMAG is devoted to keeping information current and accessible.

Manure digester. Dan Meyer, area ag engineer from Fayette, has scheduled an open house at Top Deck Holstein, Inc. for August 1, 2002. The open house will showcase a manure digester, which produces biogases that is used to produce electricity to heat water for the dairy. Please see the IMMAG Events page at http://extension.agron.iastate.edu/immag/events.html for more information or contact Dan Meyer at (563) 425-3331.

Field days. Northwest Iowa Extension staff, in conjuction with the Iowa Beef Center, are scheduling a series of field days in August and September. The series will tour feedlots, looking at feedlot design and manure management structures. A list of these field days will be included on the IMMAG Events page as the field days are finalized.
