These highly publicized improvements were celebrated worldwide as the environmentally conscious members of the world of breathed a collective sigh of relief... The forest Code was first adopted in 1965 as a way to allow farmers to purchase and farm land in the Amazon with the caveat that they may only farm a small percentage of the land. However, with the limited governmental ability to oversee the development of an enormous dense forest just slightly smaller than the continent of Australia, it wasn’t a surprise to anyone when eager farmers and cattlemen started to illegally clear additional land...

    Nuisance Lawsuits are Taking a Bite Out of Big Pork

    Hog farms are notorious for having noxious odors and flies, especially when there are too many animals for the property size or waste management techniques are improperly employed... A Little Background on the SubjectBecause we need farmers to produce the food we eat, in the past there have been protections for farmers against what are called nuisance lawsuits. These suits are brought against farmers when someone else, usually a neighbor, is objecting to some part of the farming process and how that process affects them... That’s why between 1978 and 1983, almost all 50 states enacted their own Right-to-Farm (RTF) statutes... CAFOs usually house hundreds or thousands of livestock within a confined area to be raised to a certain size, and then are shipped out for slaughter...

    Mark- First I would like to thank you for your service. It does not surprise me that you have chosen to be in agriculture. There are many parallels between it and the military. I would also like to thank you for the kind words. I have been fortunate to have been exposed to some of the best in the industry starting with my family. Being able to help others and share what I have learned along the way has been extremely rewarding. I look forward to hearing more about your journey as well.
