Keeping Engaged While Keeping Safe – #StayHome 10th Edition

To Our Equine Enthusiast Family,

While all of us continue to #StayHome to prevent the spread of the virus, we hope that everyone is staying safe, staying well, and staying engaged. This week’s feel good story is how “Rutgers to Support Statewide Contact Tracing Program” with the Rutgers School of Public Health partnering with New Jersey to train a contact tracing workforce. Learn how Rutgers University students and Rutgers Alumni are making a difference!

This week we will look at how to handle waste management on the farm. As to whether it is composting it, removing it, or spreading it, we will look at how to manage manure.

For this week’s theme, we will focus on Manure Management:
