The first event proved to be a huge success. Due to the proven interest in the show, applicators from Minnesota and Wisconsin asked for a second show. In 2003 the second show was an even bigger success than the first with more than 700 participants. The growing attendance indicated that a need was being met and that expansion was the next step.
In an effort to expand impact around the region the decision was made to turn the Manure Expo into a traveling show. The Manure Expo has been held in Wisconsin, Minnesota, Michigan, Ohio, Iowa, Pennsylvania, and Nebraska.
The North American Manure Expo brings together decision makers from the following industries:
- Highly intensive livestock producers (Dairy, Beef, Pork and Poultry)
- Custom Manure Applicators
- Researchers/Consultants and Government Agencies
Manure Expo is owned by The Professional Nutrients Applicators Association of Wisconsin.
