SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Farmers all over the state are awaiting the decision on the future of large-scale feeding regulations.
Senate Bill 319 is on hold due to a hearing next month.
It would block counties from making ordinances stronger than the state when it comes to Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations — or CAFO’s.
Many farmers want the bill to pass, but some who oppose it say there are health risks due to the effect it could have on the land and water quality.
