Demand for environmental information has prompted the National Pork Board to create a new section of www.porkboard.org that provides a one-stop shop for key information and resources on environmental issues, technologies and compliance.
“We’ve seen a need to improve delivery and access to environmental information by producers,” explains Carrie Tengman, director of Environmental Services for the Pork Board.
Informational topics include best management practices, air quality, odor control, diet manipulations, manure management, mortality management, recordkeeping, emergency and safety planning and regulatory compliance information. Comprehensive Nutrient Management Plan education, the Environmental Steward Awards and research projects are also available on the Pork Board site. Click on Environmental Issues on the left-hand menu.
