Purdue CAFO Study Presentation to Joint Ag Committees

 Monday at the Joint Meeting of House and Senate Ag Committees the report by Purdue on the CAFO study regarding the issue of local control was presented. The study was prompted by Senate Bill 249 that would have removed local control on CAFO/cfo. This is the second report that Purdue has presented on the issue.  If you would like the full report, please email Indiana CAFO Watch and I will send to you.  I did attend the meeting and found it informative.
