Where are Your Records for Manure Application

Ms. Amanda Meddles, Extension Program Coordinator for Environmental Management, The Ohio State University

Knock. Knock. “We’ve received a manure complaint. Can we see your records?”

Will you be prepared if this happens to you? Keeping accurate and detailed application records could mean the difference between avoiding a complaint and being fined for misapplying. Good records should include details about everything from the field it was applied on to the wind speed at the time of application.
