NRCS Air Quality and Animal Agriculture
The NRCS Air Quality and Animal Agriculture course is now available in AgLearn (search for “Air Quality and Animal Agriculture” after you log into AgLearn). This course introduces NRCS employees and others to the air emissions associated with animal operations and provides some information on how we can help mitigate these emissions. This course is the fifth in the air quality-related series (Air Quality, Climate Change and Energy; Why Should We Care About Air Quality; Air Quality Resource Concerns; and Greenhouse Gases and Carbon Sequestration are the others).
The non-eAuthentication versions of the new NRCS Air Quality and Animal Agriculture course were activated on the eXtension Air Quality in Animal Agriculture page (http://articles.extension.org/pages/15538/air-quality-in-animal-agriculture - see the link to the NRCS courses at: http://articles.extension.org/pages/26362/nrcs-online-air-quality-energy-and-climate-change-courses) and on Conservation Webinars.net (http://www.conservationwebinars.net/webinars/air-quality-and-animal-agriculture).
