New Manure Fact Sheet

Staff at the Iowa Manure Management Action Group (IMMAG) is developing a new resource for crop and livestock farmers around the state.

The group will write and distribute a monthly series of fact sheets on manure management.

“This valuable tool comes in response to the continued need to provide information on regulations, best management practices, neighbor relations and sources of additional information for people who produce and apply manure as crop nutrients,” explains Angela Rieck-Hinz of the Iowa State University Agronomy Department.

The July fact sheets served as an introduction and covered the various types of livestock operations. Future topics will include land application, winter manure application and manure stockpiling.

The fact sheets will be available through IMMAG’s Web site at extension.agron.iastate.edu/immag/
