Request this Valuable Report!

This report includes recent information about the fertilizer value of manure and impact of facilities design on manure nutrient value. Research data was generated in cooperation with Extended Ag Services, through a grant from the Minnesota Corn Growers Association.

It reveals findings from a multilayer research project that includes hundreds of manure samples from nearly 100 feedlots in the Midwest. It pinpoints the compartive value and economics of manure derived from indoor bed-pack facilities or those on a pit under roof manure storage, as well as manure generated from open lots.
