Rising commercial fertilizer prices are sparking a renewed interest in utilizing the many nutrients in livestock manure. Knowing how to properly utilize the nutrients manure has to offer in order to maximize yields is critical to maximizing profits. The Heron Lake Watershed District (HLWD), in partnership with Jackson, Nobles, Cottonwood and Murray Counties, is hosting a manure management workshop as a learning opportunity for feedlot operators.

The purpose of the workshop is to communicate with feedlot operators and manure applicators about proper manure sampling techniques, the value of manure, and environmental regulations. Utilizing nutrients via grid sampling and other precision agriculture methods will also be covered at the workshop.
