MONTPELIER, Vt. (WCAX) - Vermont’s winter manure spreading ban ended Thursday, but with the recent snow and cold weather, state agriculture officials are reminding farmers to hold off spreading on frozen fields.

Agency of Agriculture officials says until the good weather returns, manure cannot be applied to fields that are frozen or snow-covered, or fields that are saturated, likely to runoff, or any other off-site movement regardless of nutrient management plan recommendations.
