Iowa State University Extension and Outreach is hosting a manure management and runoff
control field day on Wednesday, October 31 from 10:30 to noon at a Naeve Livestock Farms
feedlot west of Andover, Iowa. Lunch will be served by the Clinton County Cattlemen’s
Association. The purpose of this field day is to review low-cost options for managing runoff
water and manure from small to medium size beef or dairy feedlot operations.

Feedlot owners, Ray and Andrew Naeve will discuss the two different manure control systems
at this feedlot location and will share the decisions they made on how to approach feedlot runoff
concerns.

In addition to the manure control systems, the field day will also include information on
regulations for small and medium sized feedlots, nutrient content of feedlot manure and use in
cropping systems, stockpiling regulations, and cost-share opportunities for feedlot owners.
The Naeve feedlot is located at 4166 135th St., Clinton, IA. Go 0.5 miles north of the
intersection of Co Hwy E-50 and Z-50 on Co Hwy Z-50 (thru Andover) to 135th St. Turn left
(west) on 135th St. and go 1.6 miles to first place on north side of road. This field day will be
held rain or shine.
