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...

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 ...

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...

Manure Pit Death: A Preventable Tragedy

Friday, October 19, 2018 at 2:30 pm EDT

On July 10, 1988, Jerry entered a manure pit on his family’s dairy farm. He was swiftly overcome by hydrogen sulfide gas and was found floating unconscious in the manure. He was ambulanced to a nearby hospital where the medical staff put his odds of survival at zero....

Considerations for the use of Manure Irrigation Practices

Friday, June 15, 2018 at 2:30 pm EDT - Presented by Rebecca Larson

Manure irrigation is the practice of applying livestock manure to fields using irrigation equipment. In response to concerns about this practice, University of Wisconsin Extension convened a workgroup to examine the issues. The workgroup, composed of scientists, public...

Animal Manure’s Impact on Soil Properties

Friday, May 18, 2018 at 2:30 pm EDT - Presented by Linda Schott, Charles Wortmann

Many times, discussions center on managing manure nitrogen and phosphorus in soil/crop systems. This webinar will focus on the relationships of land applied livestock manure and other organic materials to soil aggregation, resistance to erosion and microbial dynamics in ...

Making Sense of Treatment Technology Options for Livestock Farms

Friday, February 16, 2018 at 2:30 pm EST - Presented by Dana Kirk, Richard Koelsch

Have you ever wondered whether manure should be treated on your livestock operation? What technology will work best in your situation? This webinar will provide an overview of primary treatment technologies for animal manure and their capabilities/limitations/costs....

Emergency Response to Natural Disasters for Livestock Facilities

Friday, January 26, 2018 at 2:30 pm EST - Presented by Thomas Bass, Carl Dahlen, kevin erb

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...

Next Generation Strategies for Managing Edge of Field Nutrient Losses

Friday, December 15, 2017 at 2:30 pm EST - Presented by Matt Helmers

Nutrient loading and hypoxia are not just a coastal state issues. This webinar will discuss what is being done in the Mississippi River basin and Chesapeake Bay areas to meet load reduction goals. Presenters will introduce strategies and best management practices (BMPs) to...

Effects of Long-Term Manure Applications on Soil in the Irrigated Northwest

Friday, November 17, 2017 at 2:30 pm EST - Presented by Amber Moore, April Leytem, Joe Harrison

An eight-year study of manure in crop rotations that include root crops (sugar beets and potatoes) is taking a very comprehensive look at manure use. Researchers are studying everything from yields, soil health, characteristics of the harvested crop, nutrient leaching, and...

Poo is not to play with: Manure Handling Safety

Friday, September 15, 2017 at 2:30 pm EDT - Presented by Robert Meinen, Michael Pate

Join us for a “tank full” of safety topics on manure handling. Penn State University extension professionals will share on the dangers associated with agitation, confined spaces, safe operating procedures, ventilation recommendations, and worker safety. The presentation ...

Anaerobic Digestion Systems

Friday, August 11, 2017 at 2:30 pm EDT - Presented by Curt Gooch, Rebecca Larson, Mahmoud Sharara

When most people think of anaerobic digestion systems, they think about the cost of the start-up of such systems. In this webinar, presenters will discuss opportunities and the value of these systems as well as the challenges that may come along when using an anaerobic...

The Use of Runoff Risk Advisory Tools for Water Quality Protection

Friday, June 16, 2017 at 2:30 pm EDT - Presented by Nichole Embertson, Zachary Easton
