Manure Management Plans

What is an MMP?

A manure management plan (MMP) is a tool for producers to use when they plan their nutrient placement to optimize crop production. Filling out an MMP helps producers identify the amount of manure being produced, the nutrient concentration in the manure, the number of acres that are required for land application and the amount that will be applied to each available acre. Mid-size and large producers are required by state law to fill out and submit an MMP to the Iowa DNR.

Who Needs a Plan?

Iowa law requires that a manure management plan (MMP) be submitted to the DNR for confinement feeding operations that have an animal unit capacity of more than 500 animal units.

In Cerro Gordo County, the county Planning and Zoning Department and the Department of Public Health review the MMP’s and provide reports outlining potential concerns. The reports are provided to the county Board of Supervisors who then forwards those concerns tothe Iowa DNR.

The MMP’s on this page are for facilities that use fields within Cerro Gordo County to apply manure.
