Nutrient applicator training set
The Professional Nutrient Applicator Association of Wisconsin and the University of Wisconsin-Extension has scheduled a number of Level 1 training sessions across the state.
A training session will be held from 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. March 5 at the Abbotsford City Hall. Every employee of a custom manure hauling business is encouraged to attend this training.
