Vermont implements manure spreading ban

Posted: Updated:
MONTPELIER, Vt. -

Freezing temperatures are prompting a manure spreading ban in Vermont.

The Agency of Agriculture says this winter ban runs through April 1. Experts say when farmers spread the manure on frozen ground it is more likely to run into waterways, causing pollution.

During the ban, farmers must either have a storage structure capable of holding manure produced during the ban or find another way to make sure it does not affect waterways.
