Manure Safety and Transport

Many of you have probably heard of an unusual recent fatality in Wisconsin. In this tragic incident a farmer and 13 cows died, apparently from deadly gases being trapped under a thermal inversion during manure pumping. Our webcast Friday was originally going to include a manure safety presentation from Kevin Erb, but he has asked UW’s ag safety specialist Cheryl A. Skjolaas to take his place and talk about safety actions with manure storage and handling systems as well as discuss the 2 fatalities that have occurred in the past week.


In the rush to complete harvest, manure application, and winter preparations, small mistakes and accidents can result in major downtime, expense and increased liability. This month’s webcast focuses on reducing the risk—learn from a dragline manure applicator with more than 20 years experience the necessary steps to help ensure a safe and efficient manure application, from an attorney ideas and recommendations to reduce your liability, and from the experience of farmers, manure applicators and town board officials simple steps to reduce road damage and increase safe manure transportation in tankers and trucks.

An application for continuing education credit for Certified Crop Advisors (CCAs) and members of the American Registry of Professional Animal Scientists (ARPAS) will be submitted.

Presenters include:
  • Cheryl Skjolaas, University of Wisconsin
  • Rick Martens, Martens Mannurigation
  • Robert Moore, Wright and Moore Law Firm
Find out more about this webcast and future webcasts by the Livestock and Poultry Environmental Learning Center (LPELC).
