2021 Livestock Mortality Composting Certification Course

Dr. Brady Campbell, Program Coordinator, OSU Sheep Team

In conjunction with Ohio Sheep Day, OSU Extension welcomes local, regional, and state livestock producers to join us on Friday evening, October 1, 2021 from 5 – 7 pm for the Livestock Mortality Composting Certification Course to be held at the OARDC Small Ruminant Center located at 5651 Fredericksburg Road, Wooster, OH 44691.

Composting is an economical and efficient method of disposal for livestock. Certification is needed in the State of Ohio to compost cattle, horses, poultry, sheep, goats, and swine. This two hour course will review how to appropriately construct, monitor, and manage your compost system. The course will be taught by OSU ANR Extension Educators Christine Gelley of Noble County and Tim Barnes of Marion County.

There is a $10 fee for class registration and admission which will cover light refreshments and the training manual that will be received upon the conclusion of the course.
