Large farms raising pigs and other livestock have become a
of pollution in some areas. If manure is natural and
good for the
soil, why is this now a problem? Should manure be
managed as if
it were dangerous pollution from a factory? That would
be a big
change for farmers, but things are going in that
Clemson even has a certificate program for Animal Manure Managers.
question you need to answer if you pick this topic is how
balance the needs of farmers, the needs of their neighbors,
potential for damage to the environment to deal with the
animal waste from large farms.
