The eXtension Livestock and Poultry Environmental Learning Center will be hosting a webinar at 2:30 p.m. (CST) on May 17, devoted to the topic of mono-slope beef barn design and management.

The webinar will take a look at the new-style cattle barns that are becoming increasingly popular in the upper Midwest. Learn what a mono-slope beef barn is and why producers are building them. Participants can also learn about the manure storage and management considerations that accompany these barns. Two beef producers will be sharing their experiences. Both are currently cooperating in a multi-state USDA grant to determine greenhouse gas emissions from deep-bedded mono-slope beef barns.

On the day of the webinar, go to www.extension.org/58813 to download the speaker’s presentations and connect to the virtual meeting room.
