Everything you probably ever wanted to know about manure storage is covered in a new publication from the MidWest Plan Service.

The 120-page book covers six major topics: selecting the right type of manure storage, sizing a storage facility and controlling runoff, choosing and preparing a site, constructing earthen impoundments, monitoring and managing a manure storage facility, and proper procedures for abandoning and closing an earthen storage facility.

Cost of "Manure Storages," MWPS-18, Section 2, is $15 plus $4.50 for postage and handling. To order, call the MidWest Plan Service at (515) 294-4337 or (800) 562-3618.
