The program includes a compost turner demonstration and question-and-answer session.

Crop and livestock producers and others interested in composting will have an opportunity to learn more during the Manure Compost Demo Day that North Dakota State University’s Carrington Research Extension Center is hosting Aug. 24 near Carpio, N.D.

The event runs from 10 a.m. to noon at Bloms Land & Cattle, 7470 42nd Ave. N.W., Carpio. No registration is required.

Topics that will be covered are turning manure into compost and using compost as a fertilizer. The event also will include a compost turner demonstration and question-and-answer session on the Natural Resource Conservation Service’s animal feeding operation guidelines and creating comprehensive nutrient management plans.

After that, anyone wanting to continue the discussion can meet at the Cenex C-Store in Carpio.
