Technical Abstract: This document provides an example of a final report provided to fifty-four Wisconsin dairy farmers who participated in the “On Farmers’ Ground” nutrient management research project. The first part of the report contains analytical results of feed and manure samples taken during the farm visits, including information on how farmers may use these results to improve feed and manure management. The Final Farmer Report also contains estimates of manure collection, as well as a series of farm maps depicting crop rotations, manure spreading practices, nitrogen and phosphorus applications as fertilizer, manure and legume-fixed N, and farm cropland areas that are impacted by USDA-NRCS 590 Nutrient Management Standards.
