Researchers and university specialists from South Dakota State University, USDA’s Meat Animal Research Center (USMARC), and Iowa State University Extension are wrapping up a four-year study looking at concentration and emission measurements in comparison with management techniques for mono-slope beef barns and will share the results of their study. This presentation was originally broadcast on July 19, 2013. More… | Related: The first webinar in this two-part series “Design and Management of Mono-Slope Beef Barns“
