 December 28, 2016 - Manure Management Workshop to be Held in Dauphin County

dauphin, pa (December 28, 2016) - Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection’s (DEP) Manure Management Manual requires every farm in the state that produces or applies manure to develop and implement a written Manure Management Plan. The Dauphin County Conservation District will host a Manure Management Plan (MMP) Workshop with the primary purpose of guiding individuals through the process of completing a MMP for their farm.  By briefly reviewing the requirements of each section of the MMP, followed by “planning” time to complete the corresponding section of the MMP for their own farms, participants will leave with a finished MMP, or one that is well on its way to being completed.

One full-day workshop will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 8 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Dauphin County Agriculture and Natural Resources Center. Registration for the workshop is free, but is required by Wednesday, Feb. 1. Lunch will be provided.

Please contact the Dauphin County Conservation District at 717-921-8100 to register for the Manure Management Workshops. More information on manure management planning, including an overview of Manure Management guidelines for Pennsylvania farmers generating or using manure, can be found on the Dauphin County Conservation District website at www.dauphincd.org.
