Advisory Group To Address Wis. Ag Waste Emissions

“The group serves an important role in protecting the public’s health and the environment while also helping our Wisconsin farmers operate successfully and sustainably.”

Matt Frank
Wisconsin DNR Secretary

An advisory group representing the farm industry, environmental groups and health scientists will hold its first public meeting to discuss best management practices to help livestock operators reduce hazardous air emissions from agricultural waste.

The 13-member Agricultural Waste Best Management Practices Advisory Group will develop recommendations to mitigate potentially dangerous air emissions of hydrogen sulfide and ammonia from livestock waste.

Those recommendations, targeted to be completed by the end of the year, then will be considered by the Department of Natural Resources for inclusion into rule as required by state law.
