Manure management is a must

Published April 04. 2012 05:01PM

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:

• Acres of the operation: owned and rented

• Animals on the operation: Type, number and days on the farm per year

• Manure application rates and timing

• Identification of environmentally sensitive areas

• Winter application details

• Manure storage facilities: Identifying the type of tank, structure, pond or lagoon

• Solid manure stockpiling or stacking, if manure is stockpiled or stacked outdoors

• Identification of pasture areas and list acres: Owned or rented

• Identification of animal concentration areas: Owned and rented
