Emergency Response to Natural Disasters for Livestock Facilities

Are you ready? What would you (or your clientele) do if a natural disaster hit your area? What changes should and do occur on a livestock operation during or following a natural disaster, not only to ensure the safety and care of the animals, but also the environments around the operation? During this webinar, we will discuss the various natural disasters that occurred throughout 2017 and the ways that livestock farmers and Extension professionals cooperated. We will also highlight considerations related to manure storages that should be made when preparing an emergency response plan.

An application for continuing education credit for Certified Crop Advisors (CCAs) and members of the American Registry of Professional Animal Scientists (ARPAS) will be submitted.

Presenters for this webinar include:
  • Tommy Bass, Montana State University
  • Ron Gill, Texas AgriLife Extension
  • Carl Dahlen, North Dakota State University
  • Kevin Erb, University of Wisconsin-Extension
Handouts (PDF format) will be available the day of the webinar at the live webcast information page.
