Upper Midwest Manure Handling Expo first time in Iowa


Iowa State University and the Iowa Commercial Nutrient Applicators Association will present the 2009 Upper Midwest Manure Handling Expo-SET for Fall: Safety, Efficiency and Technology for the first time in Iowa on July 22 at the Central Iowa Expo center in Boone, Iowa.

This expo is designed to provide a chance for exhibitors and consumers to discuss and compare manure-handling equipment, products and services and to provide educational opportunities for applicators and consultants. Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with exhibitors, view manure application equipment demonstrations, and to attend both educational seminars and demonstrations. A current list of exhibitors is available on the expo website (http://www.ag.iastate.edu/wastemgmt/expo_home.htm).

The educational seminars include Managing Biosecurity on Swine Farms during Manure Removal, Hydrogen Sulfide Management during Manure Removal from Swine Deep Pits, Advances in Subsurface Application of Solid Manures, Iowa CAFO/AFO Regulation Update, Research Review of Solid and Liquid Manure Application on Frozen Ground, Managing Manure Application over Tile. The educational demonstrations will be related to drag hose safety and will include considerations for spill response, leak detection, and ruptured hose response.

General admission to the expo is free and parking is available on site for $5 per car. The exhibitor registration charge is $650 for either a covered 10- by 10-foot space with electricity or a 40- by 70-foot lot. Other amenities are available for purchase from the Central Iowa Expo center. A total of eight hours is available for attendees to visit exhibitor areas.

The Upper Midwest Manure Handling Expo was born due to the strong interest from Wisconsin Commercial Manure Applicators 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.
