Nutrient Management

Comprehensive Nutrient Management Planning (CNMP)

Comprehensive Nutrient Management Plans (CNMP's) are conservation plans that are unique to animal feeding operations. These plans document the practices and management activities adopted by the land owner or operator to address the natural resource concerns related to soil erosion, water quality, utilization of manure and waste water, and disposal of organic by-products.

The development of a CNMP begins with a comprehensive resource inventory of the current site conditions. Management options and structural alternatives are developed to address the resource concerns identified during the planning process.
