The 2014 Manure Demonstration Day will be a smaller version of the North American Manure Expo, held in Norfolk, NE in 2011. The event will be similar, but will focus on the manure industry in the state of Nebraska rather than nationally. Participants can view vendors, demonstrations and will have opportunities to learn more about manure management and handling. More information available here.
The purpose of this event is to provide contractors with the opportunity to access multiple associates at once, hands on testing of equipment, and see the latest innovations and products related to land improvement and soil conservation equipment. More information here.
