As researchers learn more about the greenhouse gases from livestock/poultry farms recommended practices to reduce these emissions may include improved diets, increased feed efficiency, improved energy efficiency, manure storage covers and unique manure handling and storage technologies. To learn more about the greenhouse gasses associated with livestock production see: http://www.news.msue.msu.edu/news/article/determining_livestock_productions_contribution_to_atmospheric_greenhouse_ga
To learn more about these topics visit Air Emissions and Animal Agriculture, a new online resource developed by Michigan State University Extension and Purdue Extension, that pulls together information on the odors, greenhouse gases and other air emissions associated with livestock and poultry production, and information such as what is a CAFO. The development of Air Emissions and Animal Agriculture was funded by the MSU Animal Agriculture Initiative. This informative internet resource can be found at: http://air101.msue.msu.edu/.
