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.
