Improving Air Quality In and Around Livestock Facilities


Improving Air Quality In and Around Livestock Facilities

Watch the Recording!

Air quality inside and around livestock and poultry barns can negatively impact animal and worker welfare and can be a challenge to overcome. This webinar will discuss drivers of indoor emissions as well as established and new interventions to control ammonia and dust levels inside barns. Since indoor air quality is only one piece of the air emissions puzzle, the webinar will also highlight treatment methods that impact exhaust air from barns to improve farmstead air quality.

An application for continuing education credit for Certified Crop Advisors (CCAs) and members of the American Registry of Professional Animal Scientists (ARPAS) will be submitted.

Presenters include:

  • Mahmoud Sharara, North Carolina State University (Moderator)
  • Sanjay Shah, North Carolina State University
  • Jason Oliver, Cornell University

Handouts (PDF format) will be available the day of the webinar at the live webinar information page. Find out more about this webinar and future webinars by the Livestock and Poultry Environmental Learning Community (LPELC).
