Coming in March, DNR will have an option for livestock and poultry farmers to submit their annual Manure Management Plan (MMP) updates and pay compliance fees online. The electronic (eMMP) option provides a simplified process for producers, their consultants, counties and the DNR.
Producers can submit annual short forms and pay fees from home, the office or their smart phone. Or, they can assign rights to their consultant to file the forms. The streamlined process will cut out driving to county offices for signatures. Instead, DNR will notify counties once the submission is complete.
Find out more about the process at Pork Congress this week in Des Moines. Stop by DNR’s Booth 1511 and sign up for your state log-in. Or, attend an education seminar at noonThursday in Rooms 107 and 108 in the lower level of Hy-Vee Hall, to learn how you can save valuable time in submitting your next MMP update.
If you can’t make it to Pork Congress, go to DNR’s eMMP webpage and pre-register for a Feb. 28 live webinar.
