Nutrient Management Planning (NMP)


All new and expanding livestock facilities, all Animal Waste Storage permit holders, and any person participating in a cost-share project are required to comply with NR 151 and complete a Nutrient Management Plan. This plan is to be updated annually, and soil test updates every 4 years. The Nutrient Management Checklist and a completed Nutrient Management Plan MUST be submitted by April 15th of each year to the Department of Land Management.
