Manure Innovation: Teaching Styles and Marketing Programs

Friday, March 20, 2020 at 2:30 pm EDT

Would you rather watch someone give a presentation or do something that gets you involved, maybe making decisions that you can relate back to your own farm? Active learning promotes better retention of the material. In recent years, the Nebraska Manure team has been working to...

Designer Manure: Customizing Manure Nutrients to Meet Crop Needs

Friday, February 21, 2020 at 2:30 pm EST

After storage and handling, animal manures typically do not have crop nutrient ratios of N, P, and K that meet crop needs. This means that at least one nutrient will often be over- or under-applied. But what if we could create 'designer' manures to meet these needs?...

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

Friday, January 17, 2020 at 2:30 pm EST

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...

Phosphorus Management Lessons Learned from the Field

Friday, December 13, 2019 at 2:30 pm EST

Management of phosphorus in agriculture continues to challenge the sustainability of animal feeding operations. Three Extension and research leaders for phosphorus management issues will share their experience with us on critical lessons learned about phosphorus ...

Managing Manure to Mitigate Antibiotic Resistance

Friday, November 15, 2019 at 2:30 pm EST

The use of antibiotics in livestock production has been the subject of significant scrutiny in recent years as the emergence and proliferation of antimicrobial resistant organisms fuels worldwide concern about this critical, modern day health crisis. The ability of...

What’s New with Solid Separation? NRCS has an Answer

Friday, October 18, 2019 at 2:30 pm EDT - Presented by Jeff Porter, Joe Harrison

NRCS has a new technical document entitled “Solid-Liquid Separation Alternatives for Manure Handling and Treatment.” This document brings together both the theory behind solid-liquid separation and the practical application of many different separation technologies. ...

Watershed Nutrient Inventories - Opportunities and Needs

Friday, September 20, 2019 at 2:30 pm EDT - Presented by Erin Cortus, Mahmoud Sharara

Nutrient inventories and budgets are valuable tools that can guide decisions for both voluntary and mandatory nutrient management practices from farm to regional scale. Nutrient inventories of various scales provide different perspectives, and there are tradeoffs between...

California’s Efforts to Reduce Greenhouse Gases from Dairy and Livestock Operations

Friday, August 16, 2019 at 2:30 pm EDT

California is leading the nation in setting and achieving greenhouse gas reduction goals for a carbon-neutral future and mitigating climate change. SB 1383, passed in 2016, set a target for California’s dairy and livestock sector to reduce its methane emissions to 40%...

Recent Research Efforts to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Friday, June 21, 2019 at 2:30 pm EDT - Presented by Mindy Spiehs

This webinar will discuss research projects focused on reducing greenhouse gases, odorous volatile organic compounds (VOCs), ammonia, and hydrogen sulfide. Mindy Spiehs will provide insight on anabolic steroid and ionophore usage in beef cattle production, and Baitong Chen...

Reduction and fate of manure pathogens and antimicrobial resistance

Friday, May 17, 2019 at 2:30 pm EDT

Manure treatment, such as composting, and manure land application are generally considered to be effective measures to reduce bacterial pathogens and utilize the manure in an environmentally sustainable manner. However, unlike pathogenic bacteria, antimicrobial resistant...

Three Options for Cleaning Barn Exhaust Air

Friday, March 29, 2019 at 2:30 pm EDT - Presented by Sanjay Shah, Daniel Andersen

Reducing aerial emissions and improving air quality is a common goal in the livestock and poultry industries. This webinar will present three approaches to reducing aerial emissions from barn exhaust air, using combinations of wet scrubbing, electrostatic...

Using Manure to Improve Soil Health

Friday, March 1, 2019 at 2:30 pm EST

Manure provides tremendous benefits to the soil health when compared to synthetic fertilizer. Soil organic carbon, water infiltration and pH are increased while bulk density is decreased. Manure applications according to crop nutrient requirements and the use of soil...

Separation Technologies for Capturing Nutrients from Manure

Friday, January 18, 2019 at 2:30 pm EST - Presented by Joe Harrison, Jeff Porter

Exporting phosphorus and possibly nitrogen from larger livestock operations as well as regions of large livestock populations is often essential for protecting water quality. Solids (and nutrient) separation technologies are an option for concentrating nutrients for ...

Intersections of Environmental Management and Biosecurity in Animal Agriculture

Friday, December 14, 2018 at 2:30 pm EST - Presented by Thomas Bass

Environmental management and biosecurity are strongly linked; those who advise the livestock and poultry industry on environmental issues are positioned to not only understand their role in biosecurity, but to also better incorporate biosecurity advice into their...

Manure Sampling Considerations in Different Animal Production Systems

Friday, November 16, 2018 at 2:30 pm EST - Presented by Aaron Nygren, Karl VanDevender, Mark Rice, Mahmoud Sharara

Manure characteristics vary by animal species and age and time of sampling. Farm management practices, i.e., manure handling and storage also influence manure characteristics. Sampling practices need to consider all these sources of variability to ensure manure land...
