September 12, 2023

The field day will feature a panel of dairy and beef producers currently managing a portion of their manure with composting. They will discuss their methods and objectives for composting as well as successes and challenges. UW-Extension researchers will provide practical insights into the science of composting as well as guidelines for sampling and lab submission for estimating nutrient availability. Considerations for appropriate compost site location will be discussed by the Dane County Land and Water Conservation Department. The field day will wrap-up with a compost turner demonstration and lunch at 12:00 noon.
