Land application

Spreading manureEveryone who applies manure to cropland must observe application setbacks to water features and apply at agronomic rates.

Whenever a feedlot owner applies for a permit they are required to develop and maintain a manure management plan (MMP). Development of a MMP is recommended for all those that apply manure to ensure they utilize the nutrients properly: not only to protect water quality but to also ensure they are minimizing their costs for commercial fertilizers.
