Join Us at the North American Manure Expo


The North American Manure Expo (NAME or Manure Expo) was launched in 2001 in Wisconsin by (what eventually became) the Professional Nutrient Applicators Association of Wisconsin (PNAAW) and the University of Wisconsin Extension Nutrient Management Team. The event was put together at the request of custom manure applicators who wanted to see similar equipment go head-to-head with their competitors. The event has evolved to include three main attractions: an industry trade show, manure technology demonstrations and educational events (continuing education credits). The Manure Expo is an annual event that is hosted in a new location each year. It has been hosted in Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio, Iowa, Nebraska, and Pennsylvania in the US and Guelph, Ontario, Canada.

In 2018, North Dakota State University Extension Service is co-hosting the event for the first time with South Dakota State University, University of Minnesota, University of Nebraska – Lincoln and Iowa State University. The Manure Expo will be held on August 15-16, 2018 in Brookings, SD.

NAME is a two-day event.

  • Day 1 – Tours & Agitation Demonstration
    • Off-site tours of real farms, ranches, and businesses uniquely using or managing manure
    • Demonstration of liquid agitation equipment
  • Day 2 – Education, Trade Show, & Spreader Demonstrations
    • Relevant educational sessions, huge trade show (with huge equipment), and head-to-head demonstrations of composting equipment and liquid and solid manure spreaders!

Professional manure applicators are not the only ones who attend NAME. The list also includes: dairy, livestock and poultry producers; handlers of both liquid and solid manures; crop consultants and nutrient management specialists; compost managers; custom operators; agricultural support industry; Extension and Government agency personnel. The Manure Expo is open to anyone who wants to learn about manure and nutrient management!
