Reaching the Next Generation Through Fun and Interactive Activities

Youth are an important audience for manure management professionals - they are the next generation of producers, consumers, and scientists (in other words, you!). Fairs, 4-H events, classroom visits are just a few of the numerous opportunities every year to share what we do, educate youth, and simply interact with people. However, coming up with appropriate activities can be daunting. This webinar will share ideas and activities that have been used with youth across the country on manure, air quality, and sustainability. The range in activity complexity and experiences of the presenters will hopefully spur some creative ideas for your next event!  

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

Presenters include:
  • Tommy Bass, Montana State University
  • Al Heber, Purdue University
  • Rick Fields, University of Arkansas-Division of Agriculture Cooperative Extension Service
  • Ron Birkenholz, Iowa Pork Producers Association

About the Extension Foundation

The Extension Foundation was formed in 2006 by Extension Directors and Administrators. Today, the Foundation partners with Cooperative Extension through liaison roles and a formal plan of work with the Extension Committee on Organization and Policy (ECOP) to increase system capacity while providing programmatic services, and helping Extension programs scale and investigate new methods and models for implementing programs. The Foundation provides professional development to Cooperative Extension professionals and offers exclusive services to its members. In 2020 and 2021, the Extension Foundation has awarded 85% of its direct funding back to the Cooperative Extension System, 100% of funds are used to support Cooperative Extension initiatives.
