Description: Please join Professional Engineer Steven Brogan (Rural Roots Engineering & Design Ltd.) as he discusses earthen manure storage systems. These types of manure storage systems are widely used in Western Canada, but less common in Nova Scotia. Learn how the structures work and if they might be a consideration for your farm. Steve will discuss various aspects including design, siting criteria and environmental elements. This webinar is an initiative of the new Nova Scotia Agri-Environmental Program, a three way partnership between Perennia, Nova Scotia Federation of Agriculture and the Nova Scotia Department of Agriculture which aims to reduce environmental risk on farm.
