New Video Resources on Odors and Siting of Animal Feeding Operations Now Available from Extension

Difficult decisions often face elected officials when large animal feeding operations are proposing to locate or expand in the communities they serve. Odors often are a major concern for community members. The University of Minnesota Extension would like to share helpful resources that can provide timely information to elected officials and those they serve -- a series of on-line videos that provide baseline information about the many methods available to manage odors from livestock facilities, the tools that are available to assist local zoning officials with evaluating potential sites related to odor, communication techniques for farmers/operators, and an overview of potential health impacts.

Videos in the Series:

Each video is 8-13 minutes in length.
