A 45-minute seminar entitled, “Sorting Manure—Minimizing the Mess,” is scheduled for 1 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 3, at World Dairy Expo in Madison, WI. Joseph P. Harner, a Kansas State University (KSU) agricultural engineering professor, says as dairies grow, the need for an efficient manure management system is essential. Systems should fit the dairies’ needs while minimizing environmental risks. Determining what type of manure management system works for a particular dairy can be a challenge. Harner will offer suggestions on analyzing manure systems. The seminar will take place in the Mendota 2 meeting room, located in the Exhibition Hall at the AlliantEnergyCenter in Madison. World Dairy Expo takes place Sept. 30-Oct. 4, 2008 and features dairy cattle shows, more than 1,600 exhibit booths and a variety of educational seminars. Learn more online.
