Nebraska Manure Demonstration Day

The 2014 Manure Demonstration Day was held in Lexington, Nebraska on July 29, 2014. Approximately 275 people attended the event that demonstrated how to utilize manure for proper plant nutrition while still protecting the environment. The event was similar to the North American Manure Expo, but focused on the manure industry in the state of Nebraska rather than nationally. Participants viewed 33 vendors, 16 demonstrations and had opportunities to attend educational sessions to learn more about manure management and handling. Visit the event webpage to learn more about what happened and watch some of the archived presentations.
