MPCA rules govern the collection, transportation, storage, processing, and land application of animal manure and other livestock operation wastes. The rules apply to most aspects of livestock management including the location, design, construction, operation, and management of feedlots and manure handling facilities. There are about 18,000 registered feedlots in Minnesota.
Delegated county program
The MPCA administers the feedlot program in conjunction with some county governments. Most of the counties with a significant number of feedlots have agreed to implement the state feedlot rules and regulations and are commonly referred to as “delegated” counties. A delegated county is responsible for all aspects of the feedlot program for the smaller feedlots in their county (generally less than 1,000 animal units).
The MPCA oversees larger feedlots in delegated counties and all feedlots in non-delegated counties.
Feedlot compliance and enforcement staff
The MPCA provides technical assistance to help feedlot owners meet environmental requirements. Contact the compliance staff for your area for assistance.
