Glen conducts field research on using liquid livestock manure to replace commercially purchased fertilizer on wheat and corn. Applying manure to growing crops creates an “in-season” window for manure application and results in less manure being applied in the fall months. As livestock producers strive to make better use of the nutrients in manure, they are hauling manure greater distances. Capturing the value of the nutrients in the manure can help pay for the additional manure hauling expense.
Glen was raised on a small crop and livestock farm in southeast Ohio. He taught Vocational Agriculture at Randolph Southern High School in Lynn, Indiana for five years and was a county extension educator in Putnam County, Ohio for 22 years.
