Learn how to get the most value from your manure resource at Land Application Training Days being conducted across Nebraska this February. Learn basic manure management techniques and tips to keep the environment safe and growers in compliance with their NPDES permit.

“The workshops will help livestock producers put to use the nutrient management planning requirements of Nebraska’s Department of Environmental Quality regulations and increase the economic value of manure,” said Leslie Johnson, University of Nebraska–Lincoln Animal Manure Management coordinator.

Participants who attend the day-long event will receive NDEQ Land Application Training Certification. Livestock producers with livestock waste control facility permits received or renewed since April 1998 must be certified. Re-certification will be held during the first two hours of the day-long land application training. Farm personnel responsible for land application of manure are encouraged to attend for either the initial or re-certification portion of the training. Farms must complete an approved training every five years.
