Manure Management for Horses

Manure Management for Horses

With many acreage owners having an equine interest, the topic of horse manure management is fitting. The University of Minnesota Equine Extension Team put together several webinars. This month, Sara Ellicott, UNL Extension Educator, focuses on one presented by Betsy Wieland from University of Minnesota Extension.

"The webinar does an excellent job of explaining manure management for horse owners and describing a few of the options available. Wieland points out why manure management is important. Keep in mind that you should always check with your local zoning office for regulations, and also check with the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality (NDEQ) for state regulations. For information or questions about NDEQ regulations regarding manure management, contact Mark Henning, inspector for this region, at 402-471-4221."
