August 2, 2012 – The annual Ohio State University Manure Science Review is being held August 9 in northwest Ohio.

Glen Arnold, Extension manure nutrient management specialist at the Ohio State University, says the day long program will provide a lot of valuable information.

“Our goal is to primarily continue to educate farmers, educate agency people on uses of manure, things that are working well for some farmers, things that aren’t working well and we’ve got some panel discussions,” Arnold said. “It’s just an opportunity to make the very best use of this nutrient so that we keep it out of the waters of the state.”

The OSU Extension specialist says Manure Science Review isn’t just for livestock producers, grain farmers could benefit as well.

“A lot of the research I do is use of manure on growing crops,” said Arnold. “We’ve had good results in our research plots, I think for farmers who live near livestock producers this will be a nice opportunity to learn how they might put livestock manure to use in their rotation.”

Manure Science Review is being held August 9 at McClure Farms in Paulding County. To register, contact Mary Wicks at the OARDC in Wooster, 330-202-3533.
