Extension report Ill Jody DeJong-Hughes Regional Extension Educator Ag Production Systems-Crops & Soils Fertility West Central Research and Outreach Center Morris, MN 320/589-1711 WILL THE NEW CAFO RULES AFFECT YOU? The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator, Christie Whitman, has announced that the agency has signed the new CAFO Rule on December t5, 2002. The EPA is now submitting this rule for publication in the Federal Register. What is the new national CAFO rule? This rule will apply to about 15,500 livestock producers nationally. Currently about 4,500 operations are covered by permits. Because of the new rule, EPA expects that up to 11,000 additional facilities will be required to apply for permits by 2006. The EPA reports that under the new rule "all large CAFe's will be required to apply for a permit, submit an annual report, and develop and follow a plan for handling manure and wastewater. In addition, the rule moves efforts forward to protect the environment." For more information I visit: www. epa.gov/npdes/caforule. What is considered a large CAFO? Large CAFe's are defined in the rule as operations raising more than 1,000 cattle, 700 dairy cows, 2,500 swine,10,000 sheep, 125,000 chickens. 82,000 laying hens, and 55,000 turkeys in confinement. How does the new rule affect Minnesota livestock producers? In Minnesota, there will be very little change, because of the combination of federal and state rules implemented in 2001. All Minnesota CAFe's currently have permits and the change in rules will not bring in many more. EPA estimates that Minnesota will have 539 large CAFe's under the new rules. How will a producer economically comply with these rules? To help these livestock operations meet the rule's requirements, Congress increased funding for land and water conservation programs in the 2002 Farm Bill by $20.9 billion, bringing total funding for these programs to $51 billion over the next decade. The Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) was authorized at $200 million in 2002 and will ultimately go up to $1.3 billion in 21307; 60 percent of those funds must go to livestock operations. How else will the rules affect Minnesotans? As with any rule, there are interpretations to be made and the full analysis will not be completed for awhile. Consequently, there may be a few items that will be new to livestock producers, such as, larger set-back requirements. Another aspect to this rule is that we will no longer be more restrictive against CAFe's than our neighboring states and Minnesota will become a competitive place to house large feedlot operations. In response to the State 7020 Feedlot Rules, U of M Extension would like to offer an edtlcational program that is available to Minnesota livestock producers. This is a county- based, small-group nutrient management plan writing workshops. Forty workshops will be held around Minnesota over the next 18 months. This is a "hands-on" workshop to help farmers write a crop and manure management plan for 2-3 of their fields. The plans will be based on University of .Minnesota recommendations. If you have an interest in this program or would like more information, contact Jodi DeJong-Hughes at 320-589-1711 or your local Regional Extension Educator. Jodi DeJong-Hughes is an Educator with the University of Minnesota Extension Service in Ag Production Systems - Crops and Soil Fertility area, serving the West Central District which includes Big Stone County. She is located at the West Central Research and Outreach Center in Morris, MN. .BEST..
