Reminder for all manure applicators: winter manure application may result in runoff and lost nutrients. So be careful if manure can’t be injected or incorporated because of field conditions.

For confinements, state law limits liquid manure application on frozen or snow-covered ground from now until April 1. Confinement producers must contact their regional DNR field office prior to applying manure if they’re faced with an emergency situation.
