Beneficial management practices : environmental manual for Alberta farmsteads

Description

This manual has been designed to provide you, an Alberta producer, with information about beneficial management practices (BMPs) that deal with environmental risks on rural farmstead sites. BMPs maintain or improve a farm’s soil, water, air and wildlife habitat resources, and therefore contribute to the farmstead’s overall sustainability and to the economic and environmental health of the farm family, as well as the surrounding landscape and community. Since the farmstead is the heart of your operation, it is important to learn how to identify areas of potential risk. This manual offers you options for managing those areas of risk so that your farmstead remains the key to the health of your family, your livestock and the environment.
