The Livestock and Poultry Environmental Learning Center is hosting a national conference from April 1 to 5, 2013. The focus is to integrate research, education and extension efforts related to managing environmental impacts of livestock and poultry production. They are striving for a multidisciplinary environment to "spread" the nation's best science and solutions. The conference will include workshops, tours, posters, commercial exhibits, and oral presentations. See the program for the conference. For more information, visit the conference website.
Livestock and Poultry Environmental Learning Center hosts a monthly live webcast on current animal manure management issues presented by national experts. Each workshop is also archived for viewing at your convenience.
