This is Dr. Nathan Mueller, your local agronomist for Nebraska Extension. Producers that are interested in diversifying inputs, improving soil health, and increasing yields are encouraged to take part in a free workshop about utilizing livestock manure.
The workshop will take place on Monday, August 10 from 11:30 – 1:30 at the Dodge County Nebraska Extension Office at 1206 W 23rd Street in Fremont. The Alliance for the Future of Agriculture in Nebraska, or AFAN, is partnering with Nebraska Extension to provide this workshop that showcases the ability of producers to diversify their nutrient portfolio with manure. We are working to promote this nutrient-rich product and help producers better understand the strides they can make when they use manure. Nebraska leads the country in overall red meat production and that offers producers to take advantage of the by-products of this growing industry.
Dr. Amy Schmidt with Nebraska Extension will head off the sessions in talking about the benefits of manure. Producers will be able to engage with numerous industry professionals. Local and supporting businesses will be on hand to help answer questions and illustrate the importance of this powerful crop nutrient resource.
Again, the workshop will take place on Monday, August 10 from 11:30 – 1:30 at the Dodge County Nebraska Extension Office at 1206 W 23rd Street in Fremont and a free lunch will be provided to attendees.
