A pork checkoff-funded curriculum pinpoints ways that Comprehensive Nutrient Management Plans (CNMPs) can help producers comply with the new federal Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation (CAFO) rules.

The CNMP Producer Curriculum is available to pork producers at no charge. Call the Pork Checkoff Producer Service Center at (800) 456-7675.

Although not required, a CNMP can help producers meet nutrient management plans, says Steve Stover, project developer. Those plans must be filed by Dec. 31, 2006.
