Iowa Environmental Regulations and Manure Agreements has been successfully edited.

Protecting the environment is the goal of all pork producers. To help achieve that goal Eldon will cover Iowa regulations and recommended practices focusing on "gray areas" and DNR interpretations. Particular attention will be given to DNR rules deadlines for phasing in the phosphorus index for MMP annual updates and DNR rules on composting mortalities. With the continued interest in utilizing manure to replace commercial fertilizer, manure agreements are as critical as ever to pork and crop production. Eldon will cover the "do's and don'ts" of manure agreements and the areas of concern he sees in working with individual producers.
