2015 has seen interesting development in legal issues related to livestock production.  In January 2015, a federal district judge ruled that manure (stored or applied to a field) could become a solid waste under federal environmental laws.  At the same time, a consortium of environmental and animal welfare groups filed a lawsuit against the EPA for failure to act on their petition to regulate ammonia gas releases from animal feeding operations.  The law as it relates to these operations is currently in a state of flux.

On August 6th at noon (EST), Dr. Shannon Ferrell, Oklahoma associate professor of agricultural economics, Department of Agricultural Economics, Oklahoma State University, will discuss the implications of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) and Clean Air Act (CAA) on animal agriculture, recent litigation, and other legal issues.

This webinar is open to livestock producers, Extension educators, agricultural service professionals, and anyone else interested in learning more about the potential impacts of RCRA and the CAA on livestock operations.  The webinar is free to attend.

The webinar is sponsored by the University of Maryland's Agriculture Law Education Initiative, University of Maryland Extension, DAIReXNT, the Livestock and Poultry Environmental Learning Center, and Texas AgriLife Extension.
