Feedlot facility owners must prepare a manure management plan when:
You must keep a copy of the manure management plan on file at your facility. You must also review and update the plan yearly to address any changes. Any person receiving manure to apply on their land from a feedlot of 300 or more animal units must comply with the manure management plan and complete any portions of the plan that are specific to the land/crops where the manure is to be applied.
All feedlot facilities must meet the nutrient rate standards for land-applied manure and meet all applicable setbacks and management requirements when applying manure near waters and other sensitive features. The Feedlot Rules also provide other specific requirements based on the capacity of your feedlot (including manure and soil sampling, recordkeeping and development of a manure management plan).
