Due to concentrations of animals at large facilities, animal feeding operations (AFOs) have emerged as a major potential source of water pollution. The federal government regulates concentrated animal feeding operations under its point-source pollution permitting regulations. A major determinant of whether an operation must apply for a permit is the number of animals at an individual lot or facility. This paper examines federal mandatory controls and voluntary guidelines that seek to reduce…

TLDR
Greater oversight of nutrient management plans and enhanced enforcement efforts offer opportunities to provide greater assurance that CAFO owners and operators will not allow a discharge of pollutants to enter surface waters.
Enforce Existing Animal Feeding Operations Regulations to Reduce Pollutants
Animal feeding operations are being targeted as sources of point and nonpoint pollutants. In response to the need to improve water quality, governments and agencies are enacting new regulations
Expanding regulatory requirements for poultry producers in the United States to curb water pollution
Due to public demands for enhanced water quality, American poultry producers are being subjected to increased regulation by both the federal and state governments. Under the authority of the US Clean
Impacts of Adjusting Environmental Regulations When Enforcement Authority Is Diffuse: Confined Animal Feeding Operations and Environmental Quality
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recently adjusted regulations governing confined animal feeding operations (CAFOs), significantly increasing the number of regulated firms. A theoretical
Nitrogen, Phosphorus, and Potassium Flows through the Manure Management Chain in China.
TLDR
Scenario analyses for the year 2020 suggest that significant reductions of fertilizer use and nutrient losses can be achieved through a combination of prohibiting manure discharge, improving manure collection and storages infrastructures, and improving manure application to cropland.
Nutrient management planning: Is it the answer to better management?
ABSTRACT: Agricultural nutrient management is an important part of water resources protection strategies, especially in the upper Midwest. In Wisconsin, nutrient management plans are thought to

TLDR
Adequate curing of green forage following center pivot irrigation is important to kill lagoon water enteric pathogens, even though the lagoon drinking water is mixed with fresh water.

TLDR
Soil scientists and agronomists have researched soil processes, plant nutrition, cropping systems, and water quality issues mainly on a field and farm level, but now the movement is to management and regulation of nonpoint problems on a watershed basis as proposed in the Clean Water Action Plan.
Use of Soil and Water Protection Practices Among Farmers in Three Midwest Watersheds
TLDR
The model had limited utility in predicting adoption of conservation production systems within the three study watersheds, according to respondents' perceptions about production costs, output and risks, and perceived importance of access to subsidies, technical assistance, and informational/educational programs.
