2007 Confinement Site Manure Applicator Workshops


By Angela Rieck-Hinz, Department of Agronomy, Iowa State University

Confinement site manure applicators are required by law to be certified to haul, handle or transport manure from any confinement facility with more than 500 animal units.  Iowa State University Extension will offer workshops in January and February 2007 to help applicators meet certification requirements. The focus of this year’s programming will include the applicator rules, manure use for crop production, and soil sampling requirements and recommendations. The workshops also will focus on P Index manure management plan requirements.  Confinement site applicators should plan to attend one of the workshops listed at this url to meet their certification requirements or to renew their licenses.  In addition to the 77 workshops listed, ISU Extension will also offer five dry poultry manure workshops. These dry manure workshops are also included in the table. Click here for all locations and dates.

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 County Office where you plan to attend the workshop. Registration is not required for these meetings, but you may wish to contact the Extension office to ensure there will be adequate space and training materials available. There are no fees to attend these workshops except where noted.

If you can’t attend one of these workshops and you need to attend training, please schedule time at your local ISU Extension County Office to watch the training videotape.  Due to scheduling conflicts, many offices will no longer accept walk-in appointments to watch these tapes. If you can’t attend the training, please contact your regional Iowa Department of Natural Resources field office to schedule an appointment to take the exam.
