MANHATTAN, Kan. — The Livestock and Poultry Environmental Learning Center, a part of eXtension, is planning several Webcasts this spring that delve into livestock and poultry environmental issues.
eXtension is an interactive learning environment that delivers research-based information from land grant universities. K-State Research and Extension is part of eXtension.
Each Webcast is one hour long and is available to producers and anyone else interested in the topics.

The Webcast dates and topics include:
* April 16 — Ammonia emissions from poultry operations in the Chesapeake Bay area are being identified as a possible source of nitrogen contamination of water.
What are the link and the implications for producers? (This topic is tentative.)
* May 14 — Composting Animal Mortalities —- Multiple species will be discussed, but there will be an emphasis on in-house composting of poultry mortalities.
