The Iowa Livestock Environmental Regulations handbook aims to keep livestock producers informed of current environmental regulations.
Handbook chapters discussing manure management regulations and construction requirements have been updated and posted to the Iowa Pork Producers Association Web site and can be viewed by visiting www.iowapork.org. More chapters will be added as they are completed.
"We strive to keep farmers educated and up to date on current regulations and to help them comply. This resource helps us do that," says Tyler Bettin, IPPA producer education director. "Producers are always welcome to call our office for personal assistance and questions regarding their operation."
The original edition of the handbook which came out several years ago was sponsored by IPPA, Iowa Cattlemen's Association, Iowa Corn Growers Association, Iowa Dairy Products Association, Iowa Farm Bureau Federation, Iowa Poultry Association, Iowa Soybean Association and the Iowa Turkey Federation.
Readers are reminded that information in the handbook is based on laws and regulations in effect at the time of publication. Producers are advised to stay informed of changes in these laws and to contact any of the sponsoring organizations for further information.
