BELMONT, N.Y. — Cornell Cooperative Extension of Allegany County’s Agriculture Program is excited to announce:
Composting Livestock Mortality and On-Farm Butcher Waste
Routine and emergency losses of poultry and livestock are significant environmental, biosecurity, and waste management concerns. In addition, disposal of offal and butcher waste is becoming increasingly difficult and expensive as renderers close down. Mortality composting is cost effective, environmentally sound, compassionate, easy to do, and can be done at any time of the year. This presentation will cover what composting is and how to compost livestock on farm including the regulations in New York State.
The program will be held from 6:30-8:00 pm on Wednesday, May 26, 2021. Our presenter, Jean Bonhotal, Waste Management Specialist and Director of the Cornell Waste Management Institute in Soil and Crop Sciences has spent over 25 years in education of composting food, manure, animal carcasses, and compost quality/use.
There is no fee however pre-registration is required. Registration link:
