It’s coming June 25 to 27, 2007 to Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
The Manure Management Conference, a tri-provincial initiative, is for all members of the livestock industry – producers, councillors, researchers, industry and government. This year’s conference focuses on sustainability issues.   

Leading experts from across North America and Europe will address a wide range of topics on sustainable livestock production practices, including environmental regulations, watershed and land use planning, phosphorus strategies and the latest developments in manure treatment technologies.
The conference will also feature concurrent full-day technology demonstration tours that showcase manure management and the affects on soil and water.    
An optional pre-conference tour will highlight the Red River Floodway Expansion Project, a federal/provincial initiative designed to increase the channel’s water capacity from 1,700 cubic metres per second to 4,000 cubic metres per second without adversely affecting groundwater conditions.
