Free PorkCast webinar addresses ventilation
Emergency Ventilation and Properly Ventilating Barns
When Emptying Manure Storage Pits is the topic of an Aug. 20 PorkCast
As pork and other livestock producers begin preparing to empty manure pits
and apply manure to fields this autumn, a big concern is protecting people and
pigs by ensuring that pit pumping procedures allow for adequate ventilation.
Ideally, barns are empty when agitating and pumping pits, but in most cases,
this is not practical.
Presenter Mike Brumm of Brumm Swine Consultancy
Inc., will address barn and ventilation management practices that can
significantly reduce the risk of worker and animal asphyxiation. Information on
connecting via the Internet to the upcoming PorkCast presentation, along with
accessing past programs, is available here
PorkCast is a quarterly online seminar series
that provides pork producers timely information in an efficient manner. The
Minnesota Pork Board and University of Minnesota Extension Swine program sponsor
the PorkCast presentations.
