Agricultural Anaerobic Digestion Workshop Survey
Purdue University researchers are organizing a workshop about anaerobic digestion for farmers to take place in the fall of 2022. Anaerobic digestion uses microbes to break down manure or other organic waste, producing biogas that can be used for heating or electricity generation, or upgraded to renewable natural gas. This workshop is open to any livestock farmer interested in learning more about anaerobic digestion for manure treatment and energy generation, as well as food product manufacturers or others who produce industrial-scale organic waste. We also welcome extension educators and anyone else interested in manure management and anaerobic digestion.

Drug Residue Prevention
Dr. Debbie Boyd, DVM
No dairy farmer wants to get the call that a drug residue has been detected in the milk sample from his/her farm, and the entire tanker truck of milk has been dumped at the farm’s expense. These calls do occur, but thankfully not very often. In 2015, 17 milk drug residues were detected in Indiana out of over 56,000 tests. In 2020, that number was only seven. However, the goal is for Indiana to be drug residue free.
