The field day runs from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. and will take place at the Agricultural Engineering Farm, located south of the U of I campus at 3606 S. Race Street, near the intersection of Race Street and Curtis Road, Urbana, IL.
“Livestock producers from Illinois and surrounding states will have the opportunity to learn more about advances in modern ventilation systems and air mitigation strategies as they relate to their operations,” said Laura Pepple, livestock Extension specialist in ABE.
The field day is planned with time built in for hands-on learning about ventilation system controls, energy efficiency, and biofilters. Producers will have the opportunity to visit with engineers, agency representatives, and ventilation system manufacturers.
Matt Robert, agricultural engineer from the state office of the National Resources Conservation Service will be the luncheon keynote speaker, discussing energy and air quality initiatives in NRCS programs.
Registration is free, and lunch will be provided; however, space at this field day facility is limited. Participants are highly encouraged to pre-register by Friday, Nov. 2.
