Manure Workshop Set for Horse, Nontraditional Animal Owners

5/4/2013 7:00 AM

MIDDLEBURG, Pa. — The Snyder County Conservation District is working with Pallas Hill Alpaca Farm to conduct a workshop about the new manure management and other environmental regulations geared toward horse and other “nontraditional” animal owners and operations.

It will be held 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, June 1, at the Pallas Hill Alpaca Farm, 1843 Hoffer Road, Mount Pleasant Mills, Pa. A light lunch will be provided.

Horse owners are not exempt from the new rules, regardless of whether they are used for draft purposes, riding or pleasure. Also, people who raise or house animals such as emus, guineas, ducks, alpacas, llamas and other exotic animals would need a manure management plan and to follow other environmental regulations.

Call Barry Spangler, SCCD agricultural conservation technician, at 570-837-3000, ext. 118, to make reservations by May 24.
