Legal issues regarding manure hauling, as well as issues surrounding equipment inspections and highway safety, will be discussed by Ohio State University experts and others during a joint workshop and meeting of the Midwest Professional Nutrient Applicators Association June 11 in Findlay, Ohio.

The workshop is targeted toward livestock producers, growers, professional nutrient applicators, crop consultants and Extension educators to offer information on nutrient application, management and stewardship, said Amanda Douridas, an Ohio State University Extension agriculture and natural resources educator.

OSU Extension is the outreach arm of Ohio State's College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences.

"The goal is to touch on the key issues they may have, whether it is with their equipment or on the business side of nutrient application," Douridas said. "The workshop can be beneficial to helping participants meet environmental and safety standards, improve water quality, and make their business more successful."

The workshop is from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Hancock County Extension office, 7868 CR 140, Suite B in Findlay.

Topics to be discussed during the workshop are:

  • Legal Issues for Manure Haulers
  • Facilitating Communication between Farmers
  • Equipment on the Roadways
  • Online Tools for Nutrient Management, Irrigation, and Comparing Commercial and Manure Fertilizers
  • The 4Rs of Nutrient Stewardship

Registration for the workshop is $20 for members of the nutrient applicators association and $25 for nonmembers. Payments can be sent to Douridas at 590 Woody Hayes Drive, Columbus, Ohio 43210. The deadline to register is June 1.

Continuing education credits are available for the workshop, including five hours for certified livestock managers and four hours of nutrient management for certified crop advisers. More information can be found at
