Pro-Dairy WI DNR 'Regulation' Lets Liquid Manure Fly

Gag orders needed, literally, as the WI DNR is enabling this disgusting and unhealthy practice to proliferate:

...the DNR continues to grant approvals for CAFOs to use manure spraying, once even exempting an applicant from current regulations, according to a legal challenge. Critics doubt the work group will ban the practice, given that the push to expand it is coming from big agricultural interests.
Walker said he wanted the DNR to be run with a "chamber of commerce mentality," so file under be careful of what you wish for.

The battle against these profit-driven environmental ripoffs is being led in court by Midwest Environmental Advocates. The work is costly, so think about MEA when you write checks to groups doing good, activist work.
