Ahh … the sweet smell of spring | Farm and Dairy - The Auction ...
At the Harrison Soil and Water Conservation District, we seem to be getting an increasing number of calls related to the smell and handling of manure. So, I thought it fitting to mention just how pollution complaints work, in regards to manure. Lucky for me, most of our complaints this year have been related to the smell and not actual cases of pollution. Don’t assume that just because there is a lot of smell and a big pile of manure that the livestock operation is polluting.

The herd of lowing cows parted like a wave before Curt Pate, who rode straight up to the bull and let him know who was in charge without making a sound. Pate, a 49-year-old Montana cowboy who consulted on the 1998 Robert Redford film “The Horse Whisperer,” switched his focus to cows about five years ago and has been traveling the country teaching ranchers to think like cattle and use low-stress methods of handling livestock. At the moment, his work is sponsored by the Beef Checkoff Program and industry partners, who are eager to counter bad publicity generated by a widely seen, secretly recorded video of cows on an Ohio dairy farm market trends, news research and surveys resources

WikiAnswers - What education is needed for a farm manager position
Growing up on a family farm and participating in agricultural programs for young people, such as the National FFA Organization or the 4-H youth educational programs, are important sources of training for those interested in pursuing agriculture as a career.
