Mower County is a "delegated county" of the MPCA's Feedlot Program, which aims to improve Minnesota's Water Quality. The MPCA's Feedlot Program rules govern the collection, transportation, storage, processing, and land application of animal manure and other livestock operation wastes. The rules apply to most aspects of livestock management, including the location, design, construction, operation, and management of feedlots and manure-handling facilities.  

To update your Feedlot Records*, you may download/ complete the Registration Sheet below and email it to the Feedlot Officer, or use MPCA's Online Registration System directly.

*Note: sites that are covered under NPDES Permit should not use this service; please visit MPCA's NPDES and STS Permit page for more information.
