The information on this website does not constitute legal advice, but is contained herein to provide assistance to the individual writing a manure management plan for a livestock management facility in Illinois, either for submission to a regulatory agency or for his/her own purposes.

The forms and questions on this website are derived from the University of Illinois Extension Illinois Manure Management Plan Workbook printed in 2005. The forms contained in the Workbook were extensively reviewed by the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency, Illinois state office of the Natural Resources Conservation Service and the Illinois Department of Agriculture. At the time of printing, those agencies agreed that the set of forms met their requirements for submitting manure management plans. Successfully completing the forms on this website does not guarantee those agencies will approve your plan, but we believe that by entering your facility’s data on this website the resulting manure management plan should be very close to the agencies’ current requirements.

We have made every effort to ensure the accuracy of the forms and calculations used on this website, but we cannot warrant the accuracy of the information on this site or any site to which we link; nor can/will the University of Illinois Board of Trustees assume liability for any inaccuracies contained herein. Users should review all calculations to ensure accuracy.

The law, rules, agency information requirements, and agronomic recommendations occasionally change and users should always ensure that the information is up-to-date and accurate before relying on it. We will make every effort to work with our state agencies to keep the information and forms on this site up to date, and we will try to provide information that is consistent with current best management practices and recommendations emanating from University of Illinois Extension and other public university sources

The user who is submitting his/her manure management plan to state agencies should consider contacting the respective agencies to clarify any questions related to the specific situation. University of Illinois Extension staff may also be contacted for information.
