PurposeTo cost-share barnyard control, manure management, roofing and clean water diversion practices to bring farm operations into compliance with the Agricultural Performance Standards and Prohibitions relating to elimination of winter spreading, prevention of unconfined manuere piles in WQMAs, manure storage, and prevention of direct runoff from a feedlot or stored manure into waters of the state under NR 151.08.
ObjectiveBased on the preliminary site investigations, the native soil at the site will not meet NRCS specifications for the construction of a earthen manure storage structure. The manure contained in the manure storage will be utilized in a manner that meets the requirements established in NR151.07 and ATCP 50.04 (3).
OutcomeAll of the practices listed in the application were installed. The barnyard and related practices have resulted in a "zero runoff system." Clean water is now routed to completely avoid areas that contain manure. All manure laden water flows off the barnyard into the manure storage facility. A subsurface drain was also installed entirely at landowner expense.
