February 21, 2018 (8:30 AM - 1:00 PM )

Knox Agri Center
180 S. Soangetaha Rd.
Galesburg, IL 61401 (Knox County)

The Illinois General Assembly passed the Livestock Management Facilities Act (LMFA) on May 21, 1996. Since that law was enacted, livestock facilities in Illinois that house over 300 animal units (for example, 750 finishing hogs, 214 dairy cows, or 300 beef cattle) are required to have at least one person certified in the environmental protection aspects of manure management. The "Certified Livestock Manager" is expected to be familiar with the facility's manure management system. The certificate, administered by the Illinois Department of Agriculture, is valid for three years.

Training ​will ​be ​held ​at ​multiple ​sites. ​You ​only ​need ​to ​register ​for ​one ​location/date. ​Check-in ​begins ​at ​8:30am ​and ​the ​workshop ​begins ​at ​9:00am. ​Please ​allow ​3.5 ​hours ​for ​the ​workshop, ​and ​additional ​time ​to ​complete ​the ​IDOA ​exam ​if ​needed.


University of Illinois Extension also offers a free online training modules. These modules can be taken in place of attending a workshop. There are five training modules, four have a short 20 question quiz at the end. All four quizzes must be passed to meet CLM Certification requirements. The module content and quizzes are based on material from CLM Training Manual (see below). You can access the online CLM training modules directly by using the Online Training Registration link below. Note: These quizzes DO NOT take the place of the Illinois Department of Agriculture Exam for Producers over 1000 animal units, but they DO satisfy the workshop requirements.
