Staying on Top of Manure

Iowa State University Extension and Outreach will be hosting three meetings in Northeast Iowa in June. Iowa State University Extension Ag Engineer, Dan Huyser, will begin by explaining the Clean Water Act and how this relates to the current manure regulations. The meetings will then give livestock producers the opportunity to have the Environmental Specialists, from the Iowa DNR field offices in Mason City or Manchester, explain the new EPA-DNR agreement made last fall. The specialists will explain the purpose of the new farm inspections, which farms are most likely to be inspected and the inspection process. They will also answer any questions.
The NRCS will also be present to explain the EQIP program and the areas that a producer can use this program to improve their nutrient management as well as answer any questions.
The meetings will be held from 1:00-3:00 p.m. and are scheduled for
June 3 at the Borlaug Learning center at the Northeast Research Farm at Nashua.
June 16 at the FarmTek classroom in the main office at Dyersville.
June 17 at the Northeast Iowa Community College Dairy Center at Calmar.
