SDSU Extension will host a livestock environmental training program for concentrated animal feeding operations on August 29 at 8:30 AM CST at the Crossroads Convention Center in Huron (100 Fourth St. S.W. in Huron, 57350).
This current training program meets the training requirement of the General Water Pollution Control Permit as long as it is attended within three years of obtaining coverage under the new permit. Manure applicators, producers and any other interested individuals who are not currently applying for a permit can also benefit from the information and are encouraged to attend. Certified Crop Advisor credits are available as well.
Pre-registration is required by August 27, 2018. To cover the cost of the event, registration is $50 for the first person from a farm or operation and includes lunch, breaks and training materials. Additional participants from the farm/operation can register for $50 to receive a binder or $25 for attendance only without additional binders. For more information contact Bob Thaler, SDSU Extension Swine Specialist at 605.688.5435 or John McMaine, SDSU Extension Water Management Engineer at 605.688.5610.
