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...

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

Despite decades of efforts to reduce non-point source nutrient pollution, excessive nutrient losses continue from agricultural lands, contributing to water quality impairment. Wet, temperate and/or humid regions of the US, increasingly experience frequent runoff events that...

On-Farm Nutrient Management Research: Replacing Commercial Sidedress Nitrogen with Liquid Livestock Manure on Emerged Corn

Friday, May 19, 2017 at 2:30 pm EDT - Presented by Glen Arnold

Livestock producers can more fully utilize the nutrients in livestock manure to reduce purchased fertilizer costs if they can apply manure when crops need the nutrients. Better capturing manure nutrients can reduce phosphorus and nitrogen losses into surface water bodies....

Manure and Cover Crops Roundtable

Thursday, March 9, 2017 at 12:00 pm EST

In the Manure and Cover Crops roundtable, we hope to discover whether manure and cover crops have complementary benefits related to soil quality. We’ll discuss if certain fields will produce more complementary benefits than others and whether timing of application and...

Manure and Soil Erosion, Runoff, and Losses Roundtable

Thursday, February 23, 2017 at 12:00 pm EST

In the Manure and Soil Erosion, Runoff, and Losses roundtable, we hope to discover the influence of manure on soil and runoff. We’ll discuss if certain fields will produce more environmental benefits than others and whether timing of application affects these benefits....

Manure and Soil Biology Roundtable

Thursday, February 16, 2017 at 12:00 pm EST

In the Manure and Soil Biology roundtable, we hope to discover the influence of manure, both positive and negative, on soil biology. We’ll discuss if certain fields will produce more soil biology benefits than others and whether timing of application affects these benefits....

Manure and Soil Health Testing Roundtable

Thursday, February 9, 2017 at 12:00 pm EST

In the Manure and Soil Health Testing roundtable, we hope to discover what current soil health tests help to quantify manure impacts on soil characteristics, thus determining which soil test is the best indicator and best value. We’ll also debate which types of fields might...

Manure and Soil Health (MaSH) Project

Friday, October 28, 2016 at 2:30 pm EDT - Presented by Todd Whitney, Richard Koelsch, Christina Curell, Shelby Burlew, Teng Teeh Lim

During this webinar, speakers introduce new MaSH programs and will present ideas on how research and educational programs can be shared across state borders. Information exchange formats will begin with summarizing what is known designated manure and soil health topics and...

Drone Use in Animal Agriculture

Friday, June 17, 2016 at 2:30 pm EDT - Presented by Wayne Woldt, Rhonda Miller

Unmanned aircraft systems, also called drones or unmanned aerial vehicles, are rapidly becoming available to the public. Drones are a tool that can assist with many tasks, and animal agriculture is no exception. Drones can make tasks such as visual inspections, data...

Implementation and Experiences of NAQSAT Around the US

Friday, May 20, 2016 at 2:30 pm EDT - Presented by Gerald May, Shawn Archibeque, Wendy Powers

The National Air Quality Site Assessment Tool (NAQSAT) is designed for voluntary use by producers and planners to assess opportunities for reducing air emissions around a livestock or poultry operation. The NAQSAT is continually updated with accurate, credible data, and...

MANURE ENTOMOLOGY: Manure Management That Won’t “Bug You”

Friday, April 15, 2016 at 2:30 pm EDT - Presented by Jeff Bradshaw, Jamie Cohen

Ever wonder how Mother Nature takes care of her own waste stream? Did you know Scarab Beetles that were worshipped and worn in ancient times as jewelry are actually Dung Eating Beetles? Learn all about nature’s important waste eating bugs (and more) during this webcast....

Antibiotic Resistance and Animal Agriculture

Friday, March 25, 2016 at 2:30 pm EDT - Presented by Dee Griffin, Lisa Durso

Nearly every day the media bombards us with information on antibiotics and resistance to them. This webcast will examine the veterinary feed directive and how it impacts animal agriculture as well as discuss the state of the science as it relates to antibiotic resistance....

Thermal Manure-to-Energy Systems for Farms: Technical and Environmental Feasibility

Friday, September 18, 2015 at 2:30 pm EDT - Presented by John Ignosh

Manure as a Solid Waste and Clean Air Issues in Animal Agriculture Webinar

Thursday, August 6, 2015 at 12:00 pm EDT - Presented by Shannon Ferrell

2015 has seen interesting development in legal issues related to livestock production. In January 2015, a federal district judge ruled that manure (stored or applied to a field) could become a solid waste under federal environmental laws. At the same time, a consortium of...
