Iowa State University Extension and Outreach will sponsor a Low-Cost Feedlot Effluent Pumping and Flood Irrigation Field Day on Aug. 27 starting at 1 p.m., at the Greg Galles feedlot, located south of Marcus, IA. This system is designed to incorporate a pumping system below a settling basin that will move the nutrient-rich effluent away from the road ditch to a nearby crop field. These low-cost pumping systems can provide nutrients and water to the cropland while keeping nutrients out of local water sources. This field day is sponsored by the Water Quality Initiative for Small Iowa Beef and Dairy Feedlot Operations project.
