The 2024 Nutrient Recordkeeping Calendars are Here!

The 2024 Nutrient Management Calendars are now available from the Nebraska Extension. This easy-to-use record keeping calendar tracks manure-related records for livestock and cropping operations. It serves as a guide for livestock operations that are required by the State of Nebraska to keep records. It was designed to be used by all sizes of livestock operations and includes all records required for operations permitted for the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES). Whether you have 2 head or 200 thousand, this calendar can help you keep records of your manure handling and the weather that affects its application on the land, as well as yield and fertility records for those fields.

Part of the calendar’s record keeping tools includes tracking manure application rates, which is important for getting the maximum crop nutrient value from manure and documenting one’s environmental stewardship.

It has been approved by the Nebraska Department of Environment and Energy (NDEE) and recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as a valuable resource for livestock producers. It is available for free by contacting Leslie Johnson or NDEE.

To request a calendar on-line, go to If you have a previous calendar, you may also mail in the postcard found inside the calendar to get your 2024 calendar. An electronic sample of the calendar is available. If you have any questions about the calendar or suggestions for future calendars, contact Leslie Johnson, Animal Manure Management Extension Educator.
