The Ohio Pork Council partners with Brookside Laboratories to provide discounted soil and manure samples

The Ohio Pork Council is pleased to announce its partnership with Brookside Laboratories to provide discounted soil and manure samples for all Ohio pig farmers. To help farmers better utilize their resources, Brookside Laboratories has generously offered to provide soil samples for $3 per sample and manure samples for $20 per sample for all Ohio pig farmers.

To qualify for the discount, farmers must complete a survey at www.ohiopork.org/soilsample.

“We are pleased to have the opportunity to work with Ohio’s pork farmers as they work towards continual improvement of water quality and best nutrient management practices,” said Luke Baker, Brookside Laboratories.

Once completed, farmers will be provided an email with further instructions, a unique identifying code and an order form to be submitted with their soil and manure samples. Special soil sample bags and manure containers will be provided though select integrators and county extension offices for farmers to use in this process.

“This partnership is yet another example of how Ohio agriculture is joining together to achieve common sense solutions to complex problems like water quality and nutrient management,” said Rich Deaton, President, Ohio Pork Council.

For more information please contact the Ohio Pork Council at 614-882-5887 or visitwww.ohiopork.org/soilsample.
