Manure spreading at the center of dispute between farm groups and EGLE

Farm groups are using a two-pronged approach to stop the state from changing the rules for spreading manure. The Michigan Farm Bureau, large livestock…OMG…we need to stop the spreading because of the over-application and pollutions issues caused by the manure..!  Farmers know exactly what must be done…increase setbacks…limit the amount per acre depending on the depth to bedrock or groundwater…install well-monitoring systems…have all fields tested and inspected before they are allowed into the NMP’s…just to name a few..!   Farmers know this…remember…the animals have done nothing wrong…COULD THE PROBLEM BE THEIR…OWNERS..?
