Today you’ll be doing some research on CAFOs.  On your blog provide links to information that you find.


First off, what is a CAFO? Are there regulations in South Dakota or Minnehaha County that regulate them? See if you can you find a news story of local importance about CAFOs?  How would you feel if a CAFO was proposed to be built in your area/neighborhood? What rights do producers have to construct a CAFO on their land?  Is there legislation impacting CAFOs, farmers, or non-farm landowners? What types of CAFOs are most predominant in South Dakota?  Can you find any statistics about numbers?  Which government organizations have jurisdiction over CAFOs (if any)?
