The growing separation of animal production and crop production presents unique challenges for recycling manure nutrients and organic matter. Recycling of animal manures through crops both protects water quality and utilizes nutrients valued in producing food and feed. Three perspectives from three different regions of the U.S. will be shared relative to the opportunities, challenges, and lessons learned for transferring manure from animal feeding businesses to agronomic uses.
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.
