Webcast Feb. 20 will provide tips on conserving nitrogen in feedlots

A webcast Feb. 20 will offer tips on conserving valuable nitrogen from cattle feedlots and confinement facilities.

The webcast, sponsored by eXtension, will feature experts from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and Michigan State University explaining strategies to conserve nitrogen for beneficial reuse and conservation and feeding strategies that allow more nitrogen to be retained in stored manure.

The free program is scheduled at 1:30 p.m., Central Time.

Presenters will be Galen Erickson, UNL beef feedlot extension specialist, and Wendy Powers, environmental stewardship director for animal agriculture at MSU.

Erickson focuses on environment-nutrition interactions and the nutritional effects on pathogen excretion, and Powers works with a whole-systems approach to environmental accountability. Her research interests include diet modification as a mitigation strategy for odor and gaseous emissions, as well as developing post-excretion strategies to reduce the environmental impact of livestock production.

The webcast "meeting room," which opens 15 minutes before the session starts will be at http://www.extension.org/pages/Live_Webcast_Information.

eXtension is an educational partnership of national extension divisions, including UNL's, that provides access to timely, objective, research-based information and educational opportunities. The eXtension website is at http://www.extension.org.
