Learn how Livestock systems can reduce Greenhouse Gases, Webinar November 18, 10-noon

In collaboration with Northeast Climate Hub, please join us to learn more on how you can help reduce greenhouse gases (GHG) on working lands. This series is for landowners, farmers, foresters, extension agents, and citizens.

Learn how Agriculture & Forestry can reduce Greenhouse Gases (GHG)!

Join Us for two cspeakers focusing on LIVESTOCK & GHG:

November 18, 10am-12pm Register Here:

10am: The Role of Models in Farm Systems Management for GHG Mitigation presented by Kristan Foster Reed (Assistant Professor of Dairy Cattle Nutrition & Management, Cornell University)

Dairy farms are complex systems with the main sources of GHG emissions coming from enteric methane, manure management, and feed production. However, opportunities exist to mitigate emissions from each of these sources and due to the nature of the dairy farm system, a single management decision can mitigate multiple emission sources. Models are tools that help us understand the downstream impacts of management practices and quantify emissions and other environmental impacts. I will review some existing dairy farm system models and introduce the Ruminant Farm Systems model currently under development.

11am:Feed Management Implementation From a PA NRCS Perspective- Moving from Water Quality to GHG Mitigation presented by Dan Ludwig (State Resource Conservationist, USDA-NRCS Pennsylvania)

During this presentation, participants will learn about what comprises a feed management plan as well as the concepts on how a feed management plan allows producers to make improvements to water and air quality on their farm as well as it’s potential to improve income over feed costs. This presentation will share results of ration manipulation on select farms in Pennsylvania as well as the potential interaction of ration adjustments to mitigate GHGs. The presentation will also discussion financial assistant options through NRCS programs and how nutritionists can become qualified plan writers or Technical Service Providers (TSP).

FAQs for Learn Calendar Users:

Will a recording be available?

That is entirely up to the host of this webinar/online event. If this is an Extension Foundation hosted event - we will update this calendar listing with a link to the recording usually within 48 hours. Keep in mind, many of the offerings found here in Connect Extension are brought to you by your colleagues across the system. While we encourage them to update their listings with recordings, it is entirely up to them.

How do I know if it is an Extension-hosted event?

Extension Foundation posts publicly our events to two calendars - the Extension Foundation Member Calendar and the Opportunities for Cooperative Extension Calendar.  All other events coming from across Cooperative Extension are posted to the Learn Calendar or to one of the regional calendars. All calendars populate to the same main calendar on Connect Extension. To tell the difference between what events are posted to what calendars easily, you'll see the name of the calendar posted above the title of the event if you scroll to the top.

What if I have trouble accessing this webinar?

Please contact the author of this calendar event. The individual that posted this event will have their username automatically listed at the bottom of the body of their post, right above the social media buttons. When you hover over that name, you are able to send them a private message.
