We Are Under A Manure Advisory......Seriously
Here's a weather advisory you don't hear a lot about. We are under a high runoff risk advisory. Manure related problems are usually caused when liquid manure is spread during the late winter and early spring months. Steve Huntzicker of the UW-Extension says it's that time of the year.
During these times, manure cannot be tilled in or adequately absorbed by the soil. And with the ground still frozen quite a few feet down, Huntzicker says this kind of an advisory can stay with us a while.
