Our course "Manure Management to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions" is live!
This course has the objective to give you a general understanding of manure management operations in dairy farms, the intensity and mechanisms through which GHGs are emitted from manure management operations, and strategies to reduce these emissions at the farm.
The course is divided in 5 parts (for a total of 1.5 hours): 1) Introduction to GHG emissions, 2) GHG emissions from agriculture and dairy, 3) Manure management, 4) Manure storage, and 5) Manure land application. Each module has a presentation recorded in a video format and a Quiz to review the main concepts of each module.
