Feeding site permit requirement suspended

Feeding site permit requirement suspended

The Natural Resources Conservation Board is suspending the requirement for a permit for a temporary confined feeding site.

The government agency “recognizes that due to the current very dry conditions and poor grass pastures, summer feeding of cow-calf herds may be required (and)... will not require producers to obtain permits” for temporary confined feeding.

However, manure must be managed according to Agriculture Operation Practices Act requirements, areas used for cow-calf feeding must not pose a risk to surface water or groundwater quality, the cow-calf herd must return to grazing when grass is available in 2022, and the feeding area must return to its normal use.

For more info, contact Kevin Seward, NRCB manager of compliance at 403-331-0637.
