The Vermont Manure Nutrient Manager

This computer spreadsheet template was designed to help those developing nutrient management plans for dairy and other livestock farms by recommending manure application rates that provide the most cost-effective and environmentally sound use of the manure resource. The program recommends manure rates for individual fields based on soil test-based nutrient need, manure analysis, manure management information, and the user's choice of N, P, or K as the limiting nutrient. The program also keeps a running tally of the total amount allocated to all fields on the farm and compares it to the amount available for spreading. It also estimates an economic value of manure to be applied.
