Title: Collaborative Effort Yields Manure Fact Sheet

Thanks to a long-term, collaborative effort, a new fact sheet detailing Beneficial Uses of Manure and Environmental Protection has been released. NCBA and other livestock groups, in partnership with the Environmental Protection Agency recently released the document which details the importance of manure and demonstrates to the public the ways in which it can benefit the economy while also being managed in ways which protect the environment. The publication of this fact sheet marks the first time that NCBA and EPA have worked jointly on a project. The release of the publication also helps demonstrate to the public that responsible management of manure can provide significant benefits.

NCBA views the fact sheet as the cornerstone in the development of a relationship with EPA, which has historically presented challenges for agriculture on a number of regulatory issues.

“While we don’t see eye to eye on many of EPA’s regulatory efforts, we do agree that responsible manure management can be an important resource for crop production. We also agree that manure storage and utilization can be done in a manner which results in the improvement of soil and water quality,” said Wyoming rancher and NCBA President, Philip Ellis.
