2005 Confinement Site Manure Applicator Workshops

by Angela Rieck-Hinz, Department of Agronomy

Iowa State University Extension will offer workshops for confinement site applicators in January and February 2005, see locations and dates. These workshops will provide the 2 hours of annual training required by law for confinement site manure applicators. Confinement site applicators are encouraged to attend one of the offered workshops to avoid paying late fee penalties for renewing applicator certificates. Due to the short turnaround time in deadlines, ISU Extension can’t guarantee the availability of videotapes for training prior to mid- February 2005.

Material covered in the 2005 program will include land application rules, hydrogen sulfide emissions during agitation and pumping, an introduction to the P Index and RUSLE2 for your future manure management plan requirements, and soil sampling requirements for future manure management plans.

For exact workshop locations and to confirm exact times or to determine meeting options in the event of bad weather, please call the ISU Extension office in the county where you plan to attend a workshop. Registration is not required for these workshops, however, you may wish to contact your Extension office to ensure there will be adequate space and training materials available. A copy of the confinement site workshop brochure can be accessed at extension.agron.iastate.edu/immag/certification/05csmacbrochure.pdf

Please note: If you received a confinement site applicator brochure in the mail, the time listed for the Clay County workshop on Feb. 9, 2005 was inadvertently listed as 9:30 p.m. and should be 9:30 a.m.
