The USDA-NIFA - funded "Animal Agriculture and Climate Change" (AACC) Project is focused on providing Extension Educators, dairy, beef, swine, broiler, layer, and turkey farmers and ranchers as well as their advisors the latest information about the effects of changing weather patterns on animal agriculture and how to best manage these new risks. We hope to equip readers with materials on: communication strategies, climate science, carbon footprints and sources of greenhouse gases, opportunities for improving carbon efficiency and sequestration, and updates on regulation and carbon markets.

Available resources housed on our project site include:

  • Register for the online AACC course
  • Fact Sheets, videos, and PowerPoint presentations
  • Regional project contacts and links to regional websites
  • News and events
