By Nancy Allen
A local ag official is working with five swine farmers to test a manure settling tank concept that may make it easier to ship waste out of the Grand Lake Watershed.
Terry Mescher, a state agricultural engineer, said he has four to five swine farmers who have volunteered to use 55-gallon drums on their farms to test a Canadian design that allows nutrients in manure to sink to the bottom, with the liquid staying on top.
