OCAMM program participants include livestock producers, livestock system consultants, equipment manufacturers, trade associations, compost users, and public agencies as well as faculty and staff at OSU. To develop, demonstrate, and teach the economically, ecologically and environmentally appropriate approaches to animal manure management for both large and small Ohio livestock producers.
