With approaching winter, there are several things to remember related to manure management.
- Make sure that you have enough winter manure storage. It is probably not too late to spread manure, but soon we will have frozen ground and you will not be able to spread.
- If spreading at this late date, avoid spreading in any sensitive areas such as near water or wetlands, or on sloping or highly erodible soil. It may be too late to incorporate by disking, chisel plowing etc. Manure remaining on the soil over the winter will be a runoff risk during storms.
