Certified Livestock Manager Training
Manure from large livestock and poultry farms can be an asset as an organic fertilizer when handled and recycled properly. It can also be the largest liability for a farm if handled incorrectly. The Ohio Department of Agriculture is sponsoring a 1-day Certified Livestock Manager Training session for any farmer, producer, or custom applicator who needs Certified Livestock Manager continuing education units or those who just want to learn more about best manure management practices. As nutrient management (whether with manure, commercial fertilizer, biosolids, etc.) and water quality remain at the forefront of concern for both agriculture, environmentalists, and the public, education is a key component to making the right decisions in the field.
- This one-day training will cover topics such as nutrient management, water quality issues, record keeping practices, manure technology and equipment , spill response, and a review of the rules and regulations concerning manure handling.
- Individuals attending this training will receive 5.0 hours of continuing education units toward a Certified Livestock Manager certification.
Who should attend?
- Anyone who buys, sells, land applies or transports manure who wants to learn more about best management practices.
- Owners and operators of any size or type of animal feeding facility.
- Anyone needing Certified Livestock Manager continuing education units.
