Manure Composting Workshop

By: Chryseis Modderman, Extension Educator

University of Minnesota Extension, in conjunction with North Dakota State University Extension, is hosting an online manure composting workshop.

The workshop will focus on the basics of turning raw manure into compost and consist of pre-recorded videos and a live discussion with compost producers from the region. The videos will be posted on August 4, with the live follow-up online discussion to be held on August 11, 1-3pm. Participants should view the videos before attending the live discussion.

Crop and livestock producers, large or small, are encouraged to participate in this online workshop. This is an excellent opportunity to take a self-paced course while still getting to interact with producers and presenters during a live discussion session.

To access the videos and live discussion, please pre-register by August 10 at:

  • Site selection
