Plan to participate in the Landspreading Milk Webinar on Tuesday, April 7, 2020, from 10:30 am to 12:00 noon.  Register by 4:30 pm, April 6 at https://go.wisc.edu/6mca3r .

Some Wisconsin dairy farms have been asked by their processors to withhold delivery of milk, resulting in the need for milk or milk/manure mixtures to be applied to cropland. The “Considerations for Landspreading Milk” webinar hosted in collaboration with UW-Madison College of Agriculture & Life Sciences, UW-Madison Extension, and UW Nutrient & Pest Management Program will discuss reasons for milk surpluses at some plant and future expectations, nutrient management as it related to spreading of milk, and handling and storage issues that should be considered for milk as well regulatory requirements. 

Agenda:

  • Where are we now and why we are here, Mark Stephenson, Center for Dairy Profitability & UW Madison Division of Extension
  • Nutrient availability, agronomics, and water quality issues associated with landspreading milk, Carrie Laboski, UW Madison Department of Soil Science & Division of Extension
  • Applicable DATCP and DNR rules/regulations for landspreading milk, Aaron O’Rourke, Wisconsin DNR
  • Managing milk in manure storage, handling, and treatment systems, Becky Larson, UW Madison Department of Biosystems Engineering & Division of Extension
