August 17, 2012, Kansas City, KS – EPA Region 7 representatives will meet with livestock producers on August 30 at the American Legion Hall, 210 W. Head Street, Arcadia, Iowa.

The EPA’s inspection program for concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs), winter feeding areas, aerial overflights, medium-sized CAFOs, nutrient management plans and manure stockpiles will be discussed. EPA staff will also review the selection of CAFOs for inspection, flyover practices and details about CAFO on-the-ground inspections.

“It is important for our regional staff to be out in the countryside so we can talk with livestock producers about EPA’s role in protecting water quality," said Karl Brooks, regional administrator. “EPA works with farmers to protect Iowa’s streams and rivers and this meeting helps us meet our water quality goals.”

There will be an opportunity for attendees to interact with EPA officials during a question-and-answer session led by Shawn Shouse of Iowa State University Extension.

The EPA is working with the Iowa Cattlemen’s Association, Iowa State University Extension, and the Iowa Department of Natural Resources to encourage livestock producers’ attendance.
