Certified Livestock Manager Training (CLM)

University of Illinois CLM Training

The Illinois Livestock Management Facilities Act of 1997 requires livestock producers to receive training through the U of I Extension CLM Training Program. This program provides livestock producers with the best management practices for managing and handling their manure. Livestock producers with more than 300 animal units must be a certified livestock manager (CLM).

To become a CLM, producers with 300-999 animal units can attend one U of I Extension CLM Training Workshop or pass the new online CLM Training Program or the Illinois Department of Agriculture (IDOA) administered CLM exam. Producers with over 1,000 animal units are required to complete both the workshop and the IDOA Exam. The IDOA Exam is offered immediately following each of the CLM Workshops.


Upon successful completion of these requirements, producers are certified for three years.
