Minnesota's regulatory feedlot program is conducted through a cooperative arrangement between the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) and County Government. This cooperative program is known as "county delegation" or the "county feedlot program." A county feedlot program is established by the transfer of regulatory authority from the MPCA to the county. County feedlot programs have responsibility for implementing state feedlot regulations including registration, permitting, inspections, education and assistance, and complaint follow up. The legislature provides funds to counties to implement state feedlot regulations. The amount is primarily based on the number of feedlots in the county.
Nutrient Management Test Kits
