Iowa extends deadline for comments on proposed animal feeding operation changes
October 20, 2022 by Manure Manager
On Oct. 21, Iowa’s department of natural resources (DNR) will close the period for providing informal comment to proposed rules for animal feeding operations in Iowa. This is an extended deadline part of the five-year rule review process.
The DNR is proposing revisions to the animal feeding operation rules located in 567 Iowa Administrative Code Chapter 65. The draft rule is available on the DNR’s AFO web page.
The rule revisions will, according to the DNR:
- Reduce redundancies;
- Provide clarifications; and
- Remove outdated provisions.
Written comments or questions regarding the proposed rule revisions should be submitted to AFO@dnr.iowa.gov. Comments should be made to specific portions of the rules; at this time no revisions will be made to the appendixes at the end of the chapter.
