Grow Cattle? Dairy Herds? EPA Has Eyes on You!

Not content with shutting down 1/8 of the country's electric generation, EPA will move on to harassing livestock/dairy farmers--even beyond its inane proposal to force them to control dust.

Missouri Rep. Billy Long (R) [has introduced a bill to] stop EPA from classifying livestock manure as a hazardous substance for its Superfund cleanup program. Long says such a move is an effort by environmental “extremists” to target and regulate modern livestock operations.

EPA says it's only proposing that large cattle-feed operations "report" their ammonia emissions.

And I have a really nice bridge in NYC to sell you.

Wouldn't it be something if one farmer had the guts to take one of the giant liq manure wagons you see from those mega farms and unload it in front of an EPA office.

I wish I could do photo shop.

Have a GREAT weekend
