Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) account for most U.S. livestock production. Their large scale helps keep food costs down, but the unintended consequences of spreading manure on farm fields for its fertilizer value have been air and water quality problems. Nutrient runoff, methane and ammonia emissions, and other issues have CAFOs under scrutiny from regulatory agencies, advocacy groups, investors, and consumers.
