Different techniques for manure spreading for farmers will be the topic when Peninsula Pride Farms hosts its rescheduled field day on May 1. With much of the blame of the area’s groundwater woes placed on manure handling procedures, the field day will start with an open discussion on what farmers are doing right and where they can improve before moving onto the do’s and don’ts of application and a look at injection technology. With help from Jamie Patton from the Shawano County UW-Extension office, Peninsula Pride Farms President Don Niles says test plots are being dug at the field day site and should yield some interesting results as it is the first time the study has been done.
The field day will take place at Heim’s Hillcrest Dairy in Algoma. We have registration details located online with this story.
