Iowa State University and the Iowa Commercial Nutrient Applicators Association invite you to the 2009 Upper Midwest Manure Handling Expo-SET for Fall: Safety, Efficiency, & Technology on July 22, 2009 in Boone, Iowa. The 2009 Upper Midwest Manure Handling Expo is designed to provide an opportunity for exhibitors and consumers to discuss and compare manure-handling equipment, products and services as well as provide educational opportunities for attendees. A total of eight hours of exhibitor/attendee contact time will be available.

Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in educational courses and demonstrations. Educational Seminars include: IDNR Regulation Update, H2S Management during Manure Removal from Swine Deep Pits, Advances in Subsurface Application of Solid Manures, Managing Manure Application over Tile, Managing Biosecurity on Swine Farms during Manure Removal, Research Review of Manure Application on Frozen Ground. In addition to the educational seminars, several field demonstrations including liquid and dry equipment and drag hose safety demonstrations are scheduled.

The Upper Midwest Manure Handling Expo was born due to the strong interest from Wisconsin Commercial Manure Appli- cators to have an opportunity to see side-by-side comparisons of multiple agitation and application equipment. Due to the continued interest the show has become a rotating event and is going to have its first appearance in Iowa.
