Statewide Re-Show of 2009 Commercial Manure Applicator Training to be Aug. 19

7/29/2009

AMES, Iowa -- Iowa State University Extension in cooperation with the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will conduct a statewide re-show of the 2009 Commercial Manure Applicator satellite downlink on Wednesday, Aug.19, from 9 a.m. to noon. 

This is an opportunity for commercial manure applicators who have not fulfilled their 2009 training to do so before the busy fall manure application season.  Applicators wishing to become certified for the first time also can attend. The workshop will provide the required three hours of annual training. Applicators who have already attended training in 2009 do not need to attend.

There is no fee for the workshop but applicators must register with the county extension office where they plan to attend by Friday, Aug. 14. A list of counties offering the commercial manure applicator program is available at: http://www.agronext.iastate.edu/immag/certification/09macreshow.pdf

If you have questions about the statewide re-show of the 2009 satellite downlink program, contact your ISU Extension county office or on the Web at: http://extension.agron.iastate.edu/immag/mac.html.
