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 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.

Safe TALK

Safe TALK is a 3-hour alertness workshop that prepares anyone over the age of 15, regardless of prior experience or training, to become a suicide-alert helper. Most people with thoughts of suicide don’t truly want to die, but are struggling with the pain in their lives. Through their words and actions, they invite help to stay alive. Safe TALK-trained helpers can recognize these invitations and take action by connecting them with life-saving intervention resources, such as caregivers trained in ASIST.
This training is on a first come-first serve basis with a minimum of 10 people and maximum of 30 people. Cost is $25.00. Register through Marketplace at https://tinyurl.com/y7xq7slq

Alternative Grain Storage Options

What are the options for alternative grain storage? Ken Hellevang, NDSU Extension Service Agricultural Engineer will describe the fundamentals of successfully storing grain in grain bags and in properly prepared and managed covered piles. He will also focus on important safety practices associated with temporary grain storage.

Industry representatives will show and describe options for modular bunker walls, aeration fans, wireless fan control system, wireless temperature probes, and pile or bunker covers or tarps. Industry representatives will also show and describe grain bags and the equipment to fill and unload the bags. There will be time to examine the equipment and interact with industry representatives.

Effects of Tile Drainage

How does tile drainage effect the physical and chemical properties of soil? The Big Iron Demonstration Field was tiled in 2012. Now, five years later, come to the Demonstration Field each afternoon during the 2017 Big Iron Show to see the impacts “close up”. Soil pits will be dug to expose the tile drain pipes, and areas between tiles, to compare the effects of tile drainage on soils. NDSU Extension engineering, agronomy and soil specialists will be on hand to discuss the impacts of tile drainage on soils and crop production.
