Manure Expo: Learning opportunities abound
May 22, 2015 by Press release
May 22, 2015, Chambersburg, PA – When it comes to learning the ins and outs of manure and nutrient management, the 2015 North American Manure Expo – being held July 14 and 15 in Chambersburg, Penn., – provides a multitude of opportunities.
The knowledge exchange begins the evening of July 13 with a Pump School being held by Puck Custom Enterprises at the Hampton Inn, 955 Lesher Road, Chambersburg, Penn. It will run from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Registration is required and you can do so by visiting manureexpo.org.
On July 14, following the all-day tours, education sessions will be held at the manure expo grounds from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Topics include gypsum as a bedding, gas safety, West Virginia’s Manure Transport Program and the Cotner Manure Auction. Digested Organics and Bazooka Farmstar will also be holding education sessions about their services and products.
On expo day – July 15 – five education tents will be arranged near the trade show area, each housing sessions on a different theme: commercial hauler focus, manure and corn, poultry focus, management basics, and dairy focus. Other sessions will be held over the course of the day, including regulation changes, gas safety, equine topics and PA one stop mapping.
Attendees will also have an opportunity to learn in the field. On July 15, following the morning’s solid manure spreader demonstrations, a calibration exercise will be held. In the afternoon, following the liquid manure spreader demonstrations, expo visitors can observe a spill response exercise.
And don’t forget the full day of dairy/agitation or equine/beef small farm tours on July 14 plus the trade show – a mini manure city constructed in a field of wheat stubble – and manure application demonstrations being held July 15.
This is the perfect opportunity for attendees to talk to manufacturers, dealers and other experts in the manure industry and view side-by-side demonstrations of equipment. Nowhere else can the audience view and compare technologies while kicking the tires in such a large, industry-specific forum.
