Manure Compost Demo Day Set
Crop and livestock producers, Natural Resources Conservation Service and Soil Conservation District boards and staff, and others interested in composting will have an opportunity to learn more about it during the Manure Compost Demo Day that North Dakota State University’s Carrington Research Extension Center is hosting July 9 near Hatton, N.D.
The event runs from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. at the Steve Enger Compost Site.
Topics that will be covered are turning manure into compost, the differences between manure and compost, and using compost in a cropping system. The event also will include a compost turner demonstration and question-and-answer session.
To reach the compost site from Hatton, drive five miles west on County Road 23 to County Road 12, then north on County Road 12 (past the Goose River Church) three-fourths of a mile to the site. Watch for NDSU signs. No registration is required.
