    The Ohio Pork Council, Brookside Labs, Menke Consulting Inc., and OSU Extension  are teaming up to encourage pork producers to learn more about livestock manure and soil sampling by offering discounts on manure sample analysis and soil sample analysis through the end of 2018.

By this date, wheat fields have broken dormancy and are actively pulling moisture and nutrients from the soil.
