2019 North American Manure Expo

The 2019 North American Manure Expo is being held on July 31st and August 1st at Fair Oaks Farms in Indiana. This event is a great opportunity to see new manure technology, gain knowledge through educational sessions, and see equipment being demonstrated.

The Expo kicks off on Wednesday, July 31st with tours in the morning followed by liquid manure agitation demonstrations, special industry presentations, and the trade show in the afternoon.

The dairy tour will visit Windy Ridge Dairy to learn about their anaerobic digester and Midwestern BioAg to see how TerraNu fertilizer is produced.

Participants choosing the poultry and beef tour will enjoy stops at Rose Acres high rise and double decker laying facilities and Bio Town Ag’s closed loop swine and beef production system featuring an anaerobic digester producing energy to return to the grid.

The third option is a swine workshop hosted on the Fair Oaks Farms site due to biosecurity concerns. Buiter Farms will share how their truck wash operations and Fastrack Fertilizer business help pork and dairy producers make best use of their nutrients. Klemp Farms will also tell about their contract finishing pork business, their manure application business and how this has complemented their transition to organic row crop production.

The trade show continues for the second day of the Expo, Thursday, August 1st, which also features 24 educational sessions and solid and liquid manure applicator field demonstrations. The educational sessions cover topics related to manure and nutrient management basics, manure and soils, health and safety with manure and new technologies in manure management.

With free registration (tours not included), the North American Manure Expo offers attendees plenty of time to interact with trade show vendors, see the newest technologies for manure management and make new connections!
