Coronavirus & Ag Webinar Friday
The farmdoc team at the University of Illinois College of ACES is starting a webinar series called "farmdocDaily Live" to address agricultural issues related to coronavirus. The first webinar is this Friday.
University of Illinois agricultural economists will host a webinar on the impact of coronavirus Friday morning March 20, 2020, at 11 a.m. central. It will be the first in a series called farmdocDaily Live. Farmdoc team members including Scott Irwin, Todd Hubbs, Gary Schnitkey, Jonathan Coppess, and Nick Paulson will each spend a few minutes calling out specific issues of concern and, if possible, some solutions to consider. ILLINOIS Extension farm broadcaster Todd Gleason will moderate the series and facilitate the question and answer sessions.
The farmdocDaily Live webinars are planned to continue regularly each Tuesday and Friday at 11 a.m. The second program in the series, Tuesday, March 24, will feature University of Illinois infectious disease specialist Jim Lowe. He'll discuss what disease mitigation lessons can be learned from the livestock sector and how these are being deployed.
The farmdocDaily Live series is free and open to all. Registration is required to participate. It is possible to listen to the webinars live on a regular phone line.
