The 2015 Waste to Worth conference scheduled for Seattle on March 30-April 3 still has some spaces available for participants. The Animal Agriculture and Climate Change group which helps supports this blog is helping to organize some of the sessions in this conference.
If you are wondering whether you should attend, here is a description of the conference from their main web site:
“Bringing together the nation’s best science with innovative outreach on animal agriculture and the environment. Add in opportunities to meet and network with the outstanding people behind those science and solutions. Mix together a multidisciplinary emphasis and collaborative atmosphere. That is a winning recipe for turning waste into worth!

These include: ag and environmental organizations, consultants, cooperative extension agents and specialists, equipment manufacturing and sales reps, farmers/growers, Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) staff, regulatory and policy staff, researchers, and more! Continuing education credits are expected to be available for certified crop advisors, professional animal scientists, professional engineers, technical service providers and others.”
