Commercial manure applicators - initial certification
by Jim Johnson, special projects coordinator, ISU Extension to Agriculture and Natural Resources
A satellite downlink program will be offered on September 20 for commercial manure applicators that require initial certification. There is no registration fee. The program will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., with two 15-minute breaks. Registration begins at 8:30 a.m.
This program is for commercial manure applicators who did not attend the certification meetings held in June and who have not taken the certification test. New employees who are not already certified need to become certified before applying manure this fall.
The Department of Natural Resources has informed me that confinement site manure applicators (producers who apply their own manure) can attend this 3-hour downlink and also become certified. However, they would need to attend the full 3 hours (normally, confinement site applicators attend 2-hour programs to become certified).
This program also will qualify as continuing education for those applicators already certified.
Contact your local county extension office for details and registration information.
