Cattle, CAFOS & the Environment

Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) account for most U.S. livestock production. Their large scale keeps food costs down, but spreading all that manure as crop fertilizer creates air and water pollution problems. The industry has tried to limit these impacts, but nutrient runoff, methane and ammonia emissions, and other issues have CAFOs under scrutiny from regulatory agencies, advocacy groups, industry investors, and their consumers.
