The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Army Corps) released a proposed rule in March to clarify protection under the Clean Water Act for streams and wetlands that form the foundation of the nation’s water resources. In this webcast,...

Bioaerosols from Feedlots and Dairy Farm Operations

Friday, May 23, 2014 at 2:30 pm EDT - Presented by John Brooks, Rebecca Larson, Robert Dungan

Concentrated animal feeding operations can create large amounts of aerosols, comprised of dust, odors, and biological particles. Dairy and feedlot operations can generate these aerosols during both waste application and animal activity throughout the day. It is well known...

Carbon Cycle Institute Presents: Scientific Overview of Agricultural Carbon Research & the Implications for Climate

Friday, April 11, 2014 at 2:30 pm EDT

In response to the rapid pace of global climate change, the work of the Marin Carbon Project and the Carbon Cycle Institute has focused on measuring the effects of rangeland management practices and their implications for carbon sequestration into permanent soil carbon...

Making Maximum Use of Nutrients in Liquid Manure

Friday, March 21, 2014 at 1:30 pm EDT - Presented by Glen Arnold, Bruce Clevenger, Amanda Douridas

Using livestock manure on a growing crop can more readily maximize the use of the manure nutrients while reducing the need of commercial fertilizer. Better utilization of manure nutrients will reduce offsite movement of these nutrients into surface waters. Ohio State...

Water Quality Index for Agricultural Runoff Tool

Friday, March 7, 2014 at 2:30 pm EST

The Water Quality Index for Runoff from Agricultural Fields (WQIag) is a qualitative, multivariate tool that characterizes the quality of water exiting as surface runoff at the field scale. It is simple, transparent and easy-to-use web-based system. In combination with the...

Thermal Conversion of Animal Manure to Biofuel

Friday, February 28, 2014 at 2:30 pm EST - Presented by Sammy Sadaka, Rick Fields

Continued advances in technology have facilitated new avenues to access and extract energy (in various forms) from materials such as animal manure and crop residues that have not traditionally been considered viable fuel sources. Thermo-Chemical conversion encompasses the...

Capturing Valuable Nutrients from Manure: Part 3

Friday, January 17, 2014 at 2:30 pm EST

This webcast is the last in a series of 3 webcasts that will focus on nutrient recovery from manure. The focus will be on experiences with nutrient capture in New York, capture of nutrients from swine manure, and ammonia stripping. More...An application for continuing...

Beef Facilities Conference

Thursday, November 21, 2013 at 9:00 am EST

The morning session includes results of the two-year air emissions study in mono-slope barns, air quality regulations and how to capture, manage and use nutrients produced in beef barns. The two-year air emissions study looked at the emissions of gases and dust and is one of...

Prediction of Bioavailability of Phosphorus for Dairy Cattle

Friday, September 20, 2013 at 2:30 pm EDT

Better management of nutrients in feed leads to more efficient use of those nutrients, therefore a decrease in excreted nutrients. Improved efficiency means increased profitability and the opportunity for incentive payments. This webcast will include presentations based on a...

Air Quality and Monoslope Beef Barns

Friday, July 19, 2013 at 2:30 pm EDT - Presented by Beth Doran, Erin Cortus, Mindy Spiehs

Recording at: http://www.extension.org/68671 How do monoslope beef barns compare to open feedlots in terms of air quality? What sort of emissions are coming from these buildings and at what levels? To find out the answers to these and more, join us for Friday’s (July 19)...
