Managing manure beyond the farmyard: Manure management for less-typical species and settings

This month's webinar goes beyond the farm gate and explores how manure and effluent nutrients are handled for some less-than-typical farm-raised animal species. The speakers will share information about raising alligators and deer as well as aquaculture, and how to approach manure management when published data for manure characteristics or management may be lacking. There will be opportunity for questions to learn more about these types of farms or operations.

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:
  • Doug Hamilton, Oklahoma State University
  • Brandon Smith, Tarleton State University
  • Bill West, Blue Iris Environmental, Inc and Blue Iris Fish Farm, LLC
  • Erin Cortus, University of Minnesota (moderator)
Handouts (PDF format) will be available the day of the webinar at the live webinar information page.
