KANSAS CITY, Mo (NAFB)—Environmental regulations continue to concern cattle producers across the nation. At the 2016 Cattle Industry Convention and NCBA Trade Show, NCBA environmental counsel Scott Yager says this year
NCBA is focusing on many environmental topics, including the Waters of the U.S. rule. While the rule is currently blocked by a temporary injunction, Yager says a resolution will take time.
Another issue, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, has never been applied to agricultural operations, until now. The Act was created to regulate solid waste landfills and manage hazardous waste transport.
He urges cattle producers to stay involved in the process.
That’s NCBA environmental counsel Scott Yager.
