MANURE MANAGEMENT

We might think that our small farms don’t have a significant impact on the environment. You may be surprised to learn that large scale facilities are more likely to be in compliance with waste management regulations than smaller scale facilities. Many people do not realize that their manure is not being managed properly and may damage their property; find out how you can avoid that by visiting the  Manure link: Horse Manure Management . This site is an excellent resource for tips and advice on dealing with manure and pasture management.

 Horses for Clean Water provides information on mud management and composting manure. If you have Farm Status you may be able to access services and resources under the provincial Environmental Farm Plan (EFP) Program . The EFP advisers are available to assist and offer guidance and support as well as help answer any questions you might have about your farm and environmental issues.
