Energy Conservation for Livestock and Poultry Production Webinar

Rising energy prices and concerns about energy availability are driving livestock and poultry producers and managers to review their energy use and implement energy conservation practices. For economical production livestock and poultry producers must balance feed energy, fossil fuel and electricity costs against product sales while providing for animal and employee well-being. This webinar describes key ways to conserve energy while enhancing animal well-being and production.

Speakers include: Kevin Janni and Larry Jacobson, both Professors and Extension engineers in the Department of Bioproducts and Biosystems Engineering at the University of Minnesota, and Hongwei Xin, Professor in the Department of Agricultural Engineering and Biosystems Engineering and the Department of Animal Science at Iowa State University.

This webinar was supported by funding from NCR-SARE as part of a Professional Development project coordinated coordinated by Scott Sanford, Sr. Outreach Specialist at University of Wisconsin. Information is presented by a team of extension specialists in the North Central region.
