Livestock & Poultry Expansion: Critical Issues for Discussion with Farmers and Communities

There is a growing interest in establishing new livestock and poultry facilities in Nebraska, many of which will involve contractual arrangement with supply chain partners. Our purpose is to inform Extension educators and other farm advisors on those critical issues to be considered in the planning of a new livestock/poultry facility and prepare these advisors for leading farmers successfully through this process. The tools and knowledge introduced through this professional development series will be appropriate for all production animal species. The examples used will focus on application of principles introduced in webinars to a broiler expansion in the Fremont region.

Eight 30-minute webinars will be delivered
