The North American Manure Expo will be hosted by Dave and Doug Johnston of Maplevue Farm in North Perth Township next year.

The North American Manure Expo was in Guelph in 2013 and other than that, it has always been in the United States.

The focus will be on nutrient education and the latest technology.

There will be about 200 exhibitors showing manure haulers, stirrers and innovations.

There will also be a big cover crop demonstration on different soil types and it will show how different cover crops work.”

The Johnstons have used cover crops and many different types of manure, including recently spreading egg shells to increase calcium levels in some of their soils.
