NDSU Extension is co-hosting the 2018 North American Manure Expo.

North Dakota livestock producers and custom animal manure applicators will have a chance to improve their knowledge of manure nutrient use during the 2018 North American Manure Expo.

North Dakota State University Extension has teamed up with South Dakota State University, SDSU Extension and regional partners to host the event, which will be Aug. 15-16 at the Swiftel Center in Brookings, S.D.

“The North American Manure Expo will be a great opportunity for producers and custom applicators to learn about topics such as using manure as a crop fertilizer, nutrient management planning, soil health and water quality,” says Mary Berg, Extension livestock environmental management specialist at NDSU’s Carrington Research Extension Center.

The program will include a trade show; a manure agitation demonstration; a pump school; and educational sessions on topics including manure spreader calibration, manure-spreading equipment, water quality impacts of manure application during the winter, manure pit safety, spill prevention and response, and the economic value of manure as it relates to soil health. Participants also may take tours on moving manure on dairies, manure management systems and swine manure storage.

The expo is free of charge, but organizers encourage those planning to attend to preregister. The tours cost $20 and registration is required.

For more information, contact Berg at 701-652-2951 or mary.berg@ndsu.edu, or visit https://www.manuremanager.com/manure-expo.
