This webinar will focus on assisting livestock farmers and veterinarians to better identify, diagnose, and treat sick animals with the goal of improving farm efficiency and antibiotic stewardship. This webinar is brought to you by the iAMResponsibleTM Project, a nationwide team of researchers and extension experts working to develop and deliver effective outreach on antimicrobial resistance for diverse audiences. This presentation was originally broadcast on August 18, 2023.

In the digital world in which we live today the public is presented with an overwhelming quantity of information, much of which is unscientific. In this webinar we will apply the lessons learned from antimicrobial resistance and health communications to more science communication challenges.

Biofilters have been widely adopted to filter gas, odor and particulate matter from livestock facilities. However, the science behind “how they work” and the configurations that are in practice are continually evolving. This webinar discusses past and present applications of biofilters, on-going research to better design and manage biofilters, and how to incorporate biofilters as part of an environment control system.This webcast was originally broadcast on December 7, 2012.

Do the pork industry’s efforts to improve production and economics affect its greenhouse gas emissions and carbon foot print? Research by the University of Arkansas combined with efforts led by the National Pork Board indicates that increased production efficiencies have reduced the carbon footprint of each pound of pork produced.
Have you wondered how food animal producer groups have responded to the attention given to their industries as sources of greenhouse gas emissions? Wonder no longer. Since 2008, the National Pork Board has been working on a specific plan to assess and better understand the pork industry’s carbon footprint. This webinar introduces you to this project and shows highlighted current results of this research, including description of tools designed for producers to begin to assess greenhouse gas emissions and manage resource efficiency in sow and grow-finish production. This webcast was originally broadcast on June 15, 2012. More…Continue reading “Producer Association Efforts to Address Carbon Footprints: Pork and Poultry”
