Winter Manure Application Options

Manure application in winter brings increased risk of runoff reaching surface or groundwater resources. Practical and science-based options exist for managing and reducing the risk for livestock producers who have little or no manure storage, or for situations where a late fall or early freeze limit manure application options. This webinar’s presenters will speak from personal experience—discussing the research that documents the ways to reduce risk, how one county has decreased runoff and groundwater contamination by implementing winter manure spreading plans, and a professional manure applicator’s practical perspective on options for livestock producers. 

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

Presenters include:
  • Eric Dresbach, WD Farms
  • Eric Cooley, Wisconsin Discovery Farms
  • Brent Petersen, Brown County Land and Water Conservation
  • Kevin Erb, University of Wisconsin - Extension
