MIDDLEBURG — The Snyder County Conservation District will hold two workshops to show farmers, livestock owners and horse operations how to write their own manure management plans (MMPs).

The workshops will be held from 9 a.m. to noon and 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 29, at the conservation district office, 10541 Route 522, Middleburg.

Participants will leave the workshop with knowledge and information to complete a manure management plan that meets Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) regulations.

MMPs are required by any person who raises or boards animals, produces or receives animal manure, regardless of animal type or number.

A demonstration on how to use PAOneStop — Penn State’s web-based mapping site — to create MMP maps is also planned for the workshop.

Due to the coronavirus, advanced registration is required, seating is limited, and social distancing and mask wearing will be practiced.

To register or for more information, contact Barry Spangler at 570-837-3000 ext. 118, by Tuesday, Oct. 27.
