Wanted: Feedback for improved manure treatment

Wanted: Feedback for improved manure treatment

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Animal Manure Management Team is conducting a web survey to foster development of technologies that meet the practical manure management needs of modern swine and dairy farms in the Midwest. The survey asks questions about the prevalence of existing systems and practices, needs for and desired outcomes of manure treatment, and current levels of adoption of and satisfaction with treatment technology. As a farm operator and/or facility manager, your feedback is very important in helping us identify needs and advance technologies to better serve a modern swine farm.

This survey should only take 10-20 minutes to complete. Upon completion of the survey, respondents can enter a drawing for $100 gift cards valid at their preferred manure/soil analysis laboratories. Please click on the links below to access the survey.
