About this event

The North American Manure Expo proudly returns to Chambersburg, PA. Let's make this the biggest and best Expo yet!

Tours!

PLEASE NOTE: YOU MAY ONLY REGISTER FOR 1 TOUR.

Robotic Dairy & New Poultry Layer Tour

This tour will stop at a dairy that has recently installed robotic milking, feeding, and manure collection technologies where the producers will provide a demonstration of the systems. The second stop of this tour will be at a large, under-construction, egg layer farm that will be close to populating their eight barns at the time of the tour. The layer farm will use innovative manure handling practices, including belt drying and centralized manure collection.

Stream Tour

The stream tour will explore impacts of agricultural nutrients on a local stream as well as providing hands-on opportunities for attendees to assess stream health and the benefits of buffers and stream restoration practices. One stop will be at a stream located in an agricultural area and another will be at the stream’s forested headwaters.

*$20 USD per person. Includes transportation and lunch voucher.

Note on biosecurity at the North American Manure Expo

We are aware of cases on H5N1, Highly Pathogenic Avian Influenza (HPAI) in some domestic poultry flocks in Pennsylvania. We are currently monitoring the risk of HPAI as it relates to the North American Manure Expo (NAME).

We are doing our part to ensure that you and your operations stay safe. We are taking the following measures at the Expo:

  • Supplying disposable biosecurity booties and disinfection spray on-site;
  • Not entering any poultry facilities or visiting any previously populated poultry facilities; and
  • Not using any poultry manure or compost on-site.

A note on our location:

  • Although the land where NAME will be held is owned by Lesher’s Poultry, their animal operations are several miles from the host site; and
  • No poultry manure has been applied to the field site for more than one year.

We look forward to offering you a safe and enjoyable experience at the North American Manure Expo.
