New NACCHO Policy Statement on Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations
NACCHO released a new policy statement on concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs). NACCHO advises federal, state, and local governments and related agencies to continue research initiatives and enact legislation to manage the human and environmental health risks of CAFOs.
The policy statement was proposed by NACCHO’s Global Climate Change Workgroup and approved by NACCHO’s Board of Directors in October 2018.
