Dawson County Fairgrounds - Lexington, NE
The 2014 Manure Demonstration Day will be a smaller version of the North American Manure Expo, held in Norfolk, NE in 2011. The event will be similar, but will focus on the manure industry in the state of Nebraska rather than nationally. Participants can view vendors, demonstrations and will have opportunities to learn more about manure management and handling.
Livestock and Poultry Environmental Learning Center hosts a monthly live webcast on current animal manure management issues presented by national experts. Each workshop is also archived for viewing at your convenience.
