Sorry for my long absence with my blog posts. And now I am writing to tell you the USDA NIFA project “Animal Agriculture in Changing Climate” has ended. This project sponsored my blog – among many other great activities.
In the end we have had participation in this project from people in 76 different countries. We had 509 people register for our online course with 132 complete the course. We had countless others read or view the materials we published or attend our workshops and conferences held over the past six years.
The end of the project does not mean the end to climate change or the challenges it brings to animal agriculture. Keep on learning and doing what needs to be done! Remember to always consider climate when you are making those farming decisions!
