Also highlighted will be considerations related to manure storages that should be made when preparing an emergency response plan.

Webcast presenters will be Tommy Bass, Montana State University livestock environment associate specialist; Ronald Gill, Texas AgriLife Extension professor and Extension livestock specialist; Carl Dahlen, North Dakota State University; and Kevin Erb, University of Wisconsin-Extension Conservation Professional Development and Training coordinator.
