The field days provide a good opportunity to meet with staff from ISU Extension, the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (IDNR), Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship (IDALS) and local equipment manufacturers and dealers in an informal setting to learn more about manure application equipment, rates, regulatory compliance, compaction, residue management, water quality and solid settling for feedlots.

Some field days require registration for meals or refreshments. For more information regarding these events, including directions, please visit the Iowa Manure Management Action Group (IMMAG) Web page at http://extension.agron.iastate.edu/immag/ and click the Events button. The list on the IMMAG Web will be updated continuously throughout the year.
