Manure Transport Program

This program helps poultry, dairy, beef and other 
animal producers cover the costs of transporting manure off their farms. Animal producers with high soil phosphorus levels or inadequate land to spread their manure can receive cost-share assistance of up to $18/ton to transport manure to other farms or alternative use facilities that can use the resource safely.

New 48-Hour Fast Track Option Now Available
Poultry farmers with litter to haul in a hurry should check out the new and improved 48-hour Fast Track application to move poultry litter. The new simplified application process does not require submission of a nutrient management plan.  Read more here and apply using the fillable PDF forms at right.

Manure Matching Service
Maryland’s Manure Matching Service connects farmers who have excess animal manure with nearby farmers or alternative use projects that can use the manure as a valuable resource.

Authorized by the Water Quality Improvement Act of 1998, the Service helps farmers manage manure resources, comply with nutrient management regulations, and protect water quality in streams, rivers and the Chesapeake Bay. The Service is voluntary, free and available to both sending and receiving operations. For more information, call 410-841-5864.
