Manure Mondays, an education initiative by OMAFRA, has returned to device screens near you.

Every Monday this winter, professionals from OMAFRA and their contacts have gathered online to share even more insights in the field of manure. As OMAFRA field crops specialist Christine Brown said, many manure issues are geographically agnostic, and thus, despite being an Ontario initiative, Manure Mondays education sessions are applicable to most audiences.

On March 6, the initiative continued with a discussion led by Christoph Wand and Tom Wright (OMAFRA) following up on a presentation from the 2022 Manure Mondays series. Wand and Wright provide additional insight into composting bedding pack barns including barn design, bedding choices and moisture management for these systems and share some initial research results from 25 farms in Southern Ontario.
