FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – A seminar by the team of scientists from the University of Arkansas
System Division of Agriculture studying a hog farm in the Buffalo River watershed
has been rescheduled to March 11.
Members of the Big Creek Research and Extension Team will present “Big Creek and the
C&H Farm: The Science” at 3 p.m. at Hembree Auditorium in the Agricultural, Food and
Life Sciences Building on the UA campus. The AFLS Building is on Maple Street just
west of Garland Avenue.
The seminar, originally scheduled for March 4, was postponed due to hazardous winter
Andrew Sharpley, professor of crop, soil, and environmental sciences, is the Big Creek
team leader. Sharpley will be joined by Mike Daniels and Kris Brye, professors of
crop, soil, and environmental sciences, and Karl VanDevender, professor of biological
and agricultural engineering. A question-and-answer period will follow the discussion.
The research and extension team is conducting an in-depth examination of the hog farm
in the Buffalo River watershed as it lays groundwork for the multi-phase, long-term
study. The team is conducting the work using funds from Gov. Mike Beebe’s office.
Funding was approved by a legislative subcommittee last September. Site work on the
study began in October.
The team’s first quarterly report was delivered Jan. 31 to the Arkansas Department
of Environmental Quality and the Arkansas governor’s office. The report is available online at http://arkansasagnews.uark.edu/bigcreekquarter1.pdf. An addendum to the first quarter report is available online at http://arkansasagnews.uark.edu/bigcreekreport.quarter1addendum.pdf.
The University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture offers its programs to all
