An updated calculator for estimating manure value is now available for download. Three examples, based on our Certified Livestock Manager training worksheets for swine, beef/dairy solid manure w/bedding, and turkey litter are available. Both PDF and Excel files can be downloaded. Check it out here: http://web.extension.illinois.edu/lfmm/nmp/
Users can enter their own values for manure application rate, manure application cost, crop type, history and nutrient needs, and the prices of commercial N, P, K equivalents.
