Small to medium-sized dairies and open feedlots are receiving increasing attention for regulatory compliance that addresses water quality issues.
A field day has been scheduled for Friday, July 23 from 1 to 3 p.m. at Fick’s Swiss Farm near Boyden, Iowa to help the state's producers understand these issues.
Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) staff and Iowa State University Extension specialists will help producers understand regulatory requirements, best management practices to employ and available technical assistance and cost-share opportunities.
Manure application equipment options also will be reviewed.
