Iowa State University Extension and Outreach is hosting a manure management and runoff control field day on Wednesday, October 31 from 10:30 to noon at a Naeve Livestock Farms feedlot west of Andover, Iowa. Lunch will be served by the Clinton County Cattlemen's Association. The purpose of this field day is to review low-cost options for managing runoff water and manure from small to medium size beef or dairy feedlot operations.

In addition to the manure control systems, the field day will also include information on regulations for small and medium sized feedlots, nutrient content of feedlot manure and use in cropping systems, stockpiling regulations, and cost-share opportunities for feedlot owners.
