Whether you own one horse, cow, pig or goat, or hundreds, you must have a manure management plan in place to make sure their waste doesn't foul water supplies.
The plan must be kept on-site and should include information on:
Ÿ Acres of the operation: owned and rented
Ÿ Animals on the operation: Type, number and days on the farm per year
Ÿ Manure application rates and timing
Ÿ Identification of environmentally sensitive areas
Ÿ Winter application details
Ÿ Manure storage facilities: Identifying the type of tank, structure, pond or lagoon
