Producer Association Efforts to Address Carbon Footprints: Pork and Poultry

Have you wondered how food animal producer groups have responded to the attention given to their industries as sources of greenhouse gas emissions? Are they resting on their laurels since livestock and poultry production has been shown to be a relatively minor contributor to total U.S. emissions (see NAEMS webcast)? Or are they are taking on the challenge of assessing the carbon footprints of their product supply chains and looking for practical ways to manage emissions? Since June of 2008, the National Pork Board has been working on a specific plan to assess and better understand the pork industry’s carbon footprint. Participate in this webinar to be introduced to this project and see 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. 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: Allan Stokes, Richard Ulrich, and Rick Stowell





This presentation is part of the Livestock and Poultry Environmental Learning Center's Webcast Series
