Fact Sheets About the
EPA CAFO Rule
Feeding Operations Fact Sheets (CAFO) are
a collection of more than 20 publications
that address questions educators and producers
are most like to have about what the CAFO
requirements mean, how they affect
livestock and poultry production facilities,
and what producers must do to comply with
A team of 15 Land-Grant University System
faculty, in partnership with NIFA, USDA's
Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS),
and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
(EPA), collaborated to develop the fact sheets.
To help regulating agencies and producers
apply environmental rules, the contents answer
the most frequently asked questions about
the CAFO regulations.
The group that developed these fact sheets
and the entire Livestock and Poultry Environmental
Stewardship (LPES) Curriculum Team are sharing
nationally these educational resources on
environmental topics related to animal production.
The EPA Ag Center has also played a key role
in ensuring the compatibility of these answers
with the final CAFO rules.
Al Sutton, Purdue University; Brent Auvermann,
Texas A&M University; Rick Koelsch, University
of Nebraska; and Frank Humenik, North Carolina
State University, provided leadership from
the Land-Grant University System for developing
the CAFO Fact Sheets.
