Dairy Nutrient Management Plan (DNMP)

Nutrient management is the practice of utilizing your on farm nutrients (manure) in a way that maximizes forage and crop growth, protects natural resources (soil, water, and air), and increases the efficiency and productivity of your farm. Manure should not be viewed as waste product, but rather as a valuable nutrient asset that when used responsibly, can increase the tilth and productivity of your soil, maximize crop and forage growth, and reduce the import of chemical fertilizer onto your farm.
