Manure applied to cropland during the winter months (December 1 - March 31) can pose serious runoff threats to both surface water and groundwater. Snow-covered or frozen croplands may not allow for manure to be properly incorporated into the soil, resulting in manure runoff during thaws.

All applicators/landowners that land apply animal waste during the winter within Brown County are required to obtain a winter spreading plan from the Brown County Land & Water Conservation Department.

The following policies must be met to qualify for either of these Permits:Please contact Lee Jennings, Nick Peltier or Brent Petersen at the Brown County Land & Water Conservation Department or by calling (920)391-4620 for further details.
