Some of the rules and setbacks for manure spreading in Illinois were changed by the 2014 EPA AFO/CAFO rules. Commercial manure haulers and farm operators can learn how these rules—which address ALL livestock facilities in our state—affect their operations, by attending one of the four regional meetings being held this spring. This is an important, unique opportunity to hear Illinois rules clarified by experts. Speakers include IEPA regional Environmental Protection Specialists, U of I Extension faculty and educators, and agriculture commodity group representatives. 

Sponsored by, Illinois Pork Producers, Illinois Farm Bureau, and University of Illinois Extension, these information-packed mid-day meetings are designed for anyone involved in hauling and spreading livestock or poultry manure in the state. Operators need assurance that they are correctly interpreting the 2014 IEPA rules for manure application; at these events, the regulations will be illustrated using lots of example cases for clarity. Manure nutrient management planning and data recording tools, manure gas personal safety monitors, and best management practices for environmental protection will also be discussed. Register soon for a meeting near you! These events are a great value, seats are limited, and we anticipate a big turnout this spring. Lunch is provided. Each meeting will be held 11:00-1:30. Dates and locations are below.
