RasmussenM33This webinar will focus on ruminant nutrition and feeding practices, and how ruminant production can be linked with crop diversity, soil health, climate and sustainable agriculture. Rasmussen will also discuss the strengths and weaknesses of production practices and current economics.

“The role of livestock in sustainable agriculture is misunderstood,” said Rasmussen, whose expertise extends to many areas of agriculture, agricultural microbiology, animal health and nutrition.
