Manure Management Plans and Record Keeping

Animal Manure Management September 22, 2011 Print Friendly and PDF

Developing plans and keeping records are a necessary part of managing animals. Planning processes are designed to chart a path toward making the best possible management decisions. Good records are often the only way to demonstrate that they followed the plan or, in some cases, explain deviations from the plan. Permitted operations may be required to develop specified plans and keep related records. Even non-permitted operations may need plans and records for cost-share eligibility or to certify their products for a particular market.
