Workshop to be held on strategies in managing phosphorus on livestock farms


Mon, Mar 2nd, 2015
Posted in Preston Agriculture

The University of Minnesota Extension is presenting a workshop on managing phosphorus in livestock manure at the Fillmore County Office Building, Room 108 (902 Houston Street NW, Preston) on Tuesday, March 3. If you have dairy cows or a beef finishing lot, this workshop is for you.

Rising commercial fertilizer prices have made livestock manure an increasingly valuable asset. Livestock manure contributes N, P, K, trace minerals, and organic matter all for the crop’s benefit. However, repeated application of manure at a rate that supplies all of the nitrogen needs of corn has created some soils with elevated phosphorus levels. This has made the creation and implementation of manure management plans for many livestock farms very challenging.

At this workshop we will be presenting management strategies available to land-limited Minnesota dairy farms and beef feedlots to prevent excessive build-up of soil phosphorus. All this while still maintaining a profitable livestock enterprise. Examples in the discussion will be dairy farms and beef feedlots, however, any livestock enterprise or person working with livestock farmers would benefit from this workshop.

Registration begins at 9:30 a.m. and the workshop will run from 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. There is no admission fee for this workshop. Refreshments and noon meal will be provided. Pre-registration requested, but not required. To register, please contact the Fillmore County Extension Office at (507) 765-3896, e-mail ruesi001@umn.edu.
