Jan 25: Webinar on dairy and climate change

Agriculture is responsible for about 20% of global greenhouse gas emissions, with most of that associated with livestock operations and manure management. Organic farms have many choices about equipment and inputs, manure management and composting, and cover crops and crop rotations, that can significantly affect these environmental impacts. This webinar, by Tom Richard and Gustavo Camargo of Penn State University, will review the greenhouse gas emissions associated with dairy systems and suggest alternative strategies for organic dairies.

Register now for a new eOrganic webinar on Greenhouse Gas Emissions Associated with Dairy Farming Systems on January 25th, 2011 at 3PM Eastern Time (2PM Central, 1PM Mountain, 12PM Pacific)

The webinar is free and open to the public; advance registration is required. Register at
