Manure Day in Lexington


The first Nebraska Manure Demonstration day took place in Lexington Tuesday. The demonstration featured new mechanical equipment, updated precision technology and forums to instruct farmers how manure can be used.

A big hit at the event was a 42-foot spreader that can carry lots of product and apply it to the crop.

The growing beef industry in Nebraska results in more manure nutrients. With manure being recycled into the soil, it can help the growth of crops like corn.

The demonstration shows manure is more than a just a bad smell.

“Manure is commonly considered a hazardous material when in fact, it’s a valuable resource with nutrients available to the road crop producer,” said pump supplier Rick Mysenburg.

They hope to hold another event next year in a new venue to reach out to more producers.
