Novel Livestock Housing Webcast

Time: 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.
Description: Online at www.extension.org/animal+manure+management

COST: Free

Livestock and poultry housing designs have changed in recent years, spurred by changing policies, consumer attitudes and producer preferences. Regardless of what motivates the change, however, is the need to simultaneously address animal welfare, environmental implications and cost and management factors. This webinar will provide examples and perspectives from the swine, dairy and layer industry on how and why producers have implemented changes to their housing practices, and some of the lessons learned along the way. (An application for continuing education credit for Certified Crop Advisors (CCAs) and members of the American Registry of Professional Animal Scientists (ARPAS) has been submitted).
