Some facilities have been submitting manure management plans (MMPs) signed by the MMP writer rather than the owner. Just a reminder that the plans, including annual updates, must be signed by the facility owner. If the owner is a corporation, the person authorized by law to sign on behalf of the corporation must sign the MMP. The same applies to open feedlots and truck washes that require a nutrient management plan or NMP.
