Learn about county and state permitting, barn construction and nutrient management plans at a livestock development seminar March 19 in Mitchell, S.D.

“New or expanded livestock operations provide a significant opportunity for South Dakota farm families, especially those looking to bring the next generation into the farming business. However, it is important for farmers and ranchers to plan ahead and understand all potential issues before starting an expansion,” says Richard Vasgaard, a Centerville, S.D., farmer and president of Ag United of South Dakota. “This seminar will provide important insights and resources to those considering livestock production in our state.”

Topics to be covered include both county and South Dakota Department of Environment and Natural Resources permitting processes, design and construction of barns, nutrient management plans and feeding opportunities. Presenters will include Brian McGinnis of Planning and Development District III, Brad Woerner of Stockwell Engineers and Tyler Samuelson of Summit Contracting.

The meeting runs from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and will held in the Technology Center Amphitheatre at Mitchell Technical Institute, 1800 E. Spruce St., Mitchell.

The seminar is presented by Ag United for South Dakota, East River Electric Cooperative, the Mitchell Chamber of Commerce and the South Dakota Soybean Research and Promotion Council.

The seminar is free. Pre-registration is required and space is limited to 75 attendees. A complimentary lunch will be provided. To register, email [email protected] or call 605-336-3622 by March 13.
