It’s no surprise that Big Ag and their cronies fight new rules to reduce nitrate levels in Minnesota waters. Our grassroots organization, Dodge County Concerned Citizens, audited the manure management plans on file in Dodge County. Of the 234 registered feedlots in the county, only 37 had manure management plans on file. No one knows where and how much manure from large factory farms is being lathered onto the land. We also checked with the Minnesota DNR and discovered that of the 234 registered factory farms in the county, only six feedlot operators possessed a water appropriations permit. If you draw more than 1 million gallons from the aquifer per year, you must possess a water appropriations permit. The industry does not want citizens to know how much water they’re taking up from the aquifers. Large corporate interests and their local cronies are squandering our valuable water resources and returning the water contaminated. Please watch our mini documentary, The Dark Side of the Other White Meat, for further information.
