NYS Manure Covers and Flare Offs Reducing Ordors, Methane
New York Ag Connection - 10/22/2020

To improve their environmental stewardship and be better neighbors, more and more dairy farmers are turning to covered manure pits that feature methane-eliminating flare off systems.

New York Farmers are implementing innovative manure management techniques for environmental stewardship, farm viability, and the community. Cornell Cooperative Extension and Cornell PRO DAIRY partner with New York State and County Soil & Water Conservation Districts to help farms afford and design manure pit cover and flare systems.

In a video released this week, Tim Fessenden of Fessenden Dairy in Cayuga County and Meghan Hauser of Table Rock Farm in Wyoming County join Curt Gooch, senior extension associate, Cornell PRO DAIRY and Allen Fagan, district manager, Wyoming County Soil & Water Conservation District discuss the benefits that manure pit cover and flare systems have had on their farms.
