Manure stockpiling guidelines

From Wayne Schoper — Brown/Nicollet Extension Educator

This time of year we are thinking about cleaning out the various manure sources that we have on the dairy farm. The calf barn or the heifer and dry cow facility all have some manure that needs to get cleaned out after a long winter. The question is what to do with that manure until the fields are ready to spread. One option that a lot of farmers do is stockpiling the manure. Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) recently came out with some guidelines for stockpiling manure.
