Nebraska Extension will offer a workshop Jan. 31, 2017 in Scottsbluff providing livestock and crop farmers with information on how to turn manure nutrients into better crop yields while protecting the environment.
The workshop begins at 9 a.m. at the Panhandle Research and Extension Center. It is one of eight training sessions scheduled across Nebraska.
Livestock producers with livestock waste control facility permits received or renewed since April 1998 must be certified. A farm must complete an approved training every five years, and farm personnel responsible for land application of manure are also encouraged to attend. Re-certification will be held during the first two hours of the day-long land application training.
