June 5, 2015, Chambersburg, PA – The 2015 North American Manure Expo – scheduled for July 14 and 15 in Chambersburg, Penn. – is just a little over a month away and organizers are busy putting the finishing touches on the show.
As the manure expo continues to evolve every year, one new promotional twist for 2015 is a T-shirt contest that is, well, a crap load of fun.
The slogan for the Pennsylvania show – 2015 Manure Expo: Manure than you can Handle! – is an amusing play on words. To help continue the fun, a T-shirt with the slogan on the front is being created. On the back of the shirt will be the “Top 10 Rejected Manure Expo Slogans.”
Earlier this year, more than 750 suggestions were collected from all over the world. A team of highly trained poopologists spent the past few weeks wading through the entries.
A few examples include:
- Manure Expo: Immerse yourself
- Manure Expo: Where nobody stands behind their product
- You provide the creek, we provide the paddle
Competition was deep but 50 choices floated to the top. Now, it’s time for the public to vote and choose the top 10 favorite crappiest slogans.
It’s easy to do. Just visit surveymonkey.com/s/crappiest and pick the 10 entries you like the best. But remember – you don’t have a lot of time. All voting must be completed by midnight June 10.
T-shirts will be available for free to the first 600 people who register for Manure Expo at manureexpo.org. They must redeem their printed registration form at the Manure Manager magazine booth on July 15. Shirts will be available for purchase on the website in the weeks leading up to, and after, the show, although shipment will not occur until after July 15 – we wouldn’t want to ruin the surprise of discovering which rejected slogans were chosen.

Please note: Due to biosecurity concerns related to the highly pathogenic avian influenza (HPAI) H5N1 virus, currently affecting poultry producers in various areas of the U.S., the full-day poultry-themed tour scheduled for July 14 has been cancelled. The Manure Expo planning committee apologizes for the agenda change and any confusion it may cause.
The remaining tours – Dairy, Equine/Small Beef Farm and the half-day agitation tour – will continue on July 14 as previously organized. For more information or to register, visit manureexpo.org.
