Special Addition! Iowa Learning Farms Webinar: Drought Planning and Response in Livestock Operations
October 5 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
The Iowa Learning Farms conservation webinar taking place October 5 at noon CDT will feature Daniel Andersen, associate professor and extension specialist, Iowa State University. Andersen’s research focuses on livestock manure management strategies to improve sustainability and address water quality.
In the webinar, “When Wells Run Short – Options for Livestock Farmers When Water Becomes and Issue,” Andersen will present an overview of current drought conditions in Iowa that are impacting livestock information operations. He will discuss options that livestock producers may have if wells begin to run short during drought conditions. Andersen will also offer advice and best practices for developing emergency action plans to respond to critical water shortages.
“Drought is certainly more evident in crop fields, but it can be equally devastating to the livestock producer,” said Andersen. “The past three years of dry weather have left many Iowa streams almost dry, and in some areas well water supplies are below normal. I hope that participants in this webinar will gain insights into options for responding to this trying situation as well as planning steps that can erase impacts before the water runs out.”
