Keeping Fresh Manure management today requires planning and diligence to be able to be a leader in environmental stewardship. Dr. Steve Pohl, South Dakota State University, runs through the types of systems to handle pig manure and what managers and staff need to know for each. Some key message include that the farmer must be a good neighbor, knows the rules, and considers environment before expansion.
Research at Manitoba's Prairie Agricultural Machinery Institute to lower phosphorus in swine manure prior to application is showing promise. As Bruce Cochrane talks with Lorne Grieger, the systems under review are removing as much as 50%.
