Beef Facilities Conference

Event Detail
Date: Thursday, November 21st
Time: 8:00 am-3:30 pm
Description:

The morning session includes results of the two-year air emissions study in mono-slope barns, air quality regulations and how to capture, manage and use nutrients produced in beef barns. The two-year air emissions study looked at the emissions of gases and dust and is one of the first studies looking at air quality in these barns. Morning presenters are Erin Cortus, assistant professor at SDSU; Mindy Spiehs, research animal scientist at USDA, ARS, U.S. Meat Animal Research Center; Rick Stowell, associate professor at UNL; Kris Kohl, ISU Extension and Outreach ag engineering program specialist; and Angie Rieck-Hinz, Extension program specialist at ISU.

Afternoon sessions involve two panels – a producer panel discussing building management in different style barns and a university panel discussing cattle performance. Four styles of facilities will be featured – mono-slopes, hoops, slatted floor deep-pit barns and open lots. The university panel includes Robbi Pritchard, distinguished professor at SDSU; Dan Loy, Director of the Iowa Beef Center at ISU and Shawn Shouse, ISU Extension and Outreach ag engineering program specialist; and Russ Euken, ISU Extension and Outreach livestock program specialist.

The conference is tailored to feedlot producers, beef consultants, building contractors, engineers and consultants, state and federal agency staff and extension and university professionals.
