– Ohio’s annual Manure Science Review, featuring new and better ways to manage
farm manure and wastewater, takes place in the state’s west on August 16.

Speakers from Ohio
agencies, the farming community, and Ohio State University highlight the
program. Both morning presentations and afternoon field demonstrations are part
of it.

Organizers say the event
has a double focus: to put waste to good use – to fertilize crops, cut disposal
costs and save farmers money – and keep water supplies safe.

New technologies and
alternative methods are some of the topics, with an emphasis on reducing runoff
risk and nutrient loss. Of note are sessions on separating dairy solids and on
using those solids as alternative bedding for cattle.

The program takes place
from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Winner Family Farm, 4317 State Route 47 West, in
DeGraff in Logan County.

Registration costs $30 by
August 8, $35 afterward and at the door, with members of the Midwest
Professional Nutrient Applicators Association
receiving a $5 discount. A
continental breakfast, lunch and all materials are included.
