American Farm Bureau Federation President Zippy Duvall commented today on the Environmental Protection Agency’s decision to reject two petitions seeking stricter regulation of animal feeding operations.

“America’s farmers are committed to growing safe and affordable food while protecting the resources they’re entrusted with. AFBF appreciates EPA for recognizing those efforts by rejecting attempts to unfairly target farmers who take care of herds and ultimately help meet America’s nutritional needs.

“As EPA moves forward with plans to study the issue further, we urge the agency to carefully consider the benefits animal feeding operations provide in America’s sustainability efforts.”
