Micro Manure Management webcast May 22

When discussing manure management and land application, we often focus on the big picture – tons, nutrient calculations, odors and size of storage. A webcast at 1:30 p.m. CDT May 22 will take a look at the smallest manure managers – microbes and soil mesofauna – and how the work they do can drive our farming systems.

Presenters are Nicole Schuster, University of Nebraska – Lincoln graduate student pursuing a Master’s of Science in agricultural and biological systems engineering; Michael DuPonte, a county Extension agent in livestock programs at the Mealani Research Field Station in Kamuela, Hawaii; and Mario E. de Haro-Martí, University of Idaho Gooding County Extension educator.

On the day of the webcast, go to www.extension.org/58813 to download the speaker’s PowerPoint presentations and connect to the virtual meeting room. First time viewers should also follow the steps at www.extension.org/8924.
