DairyCast Update for April 30, 2012, EPA and Agriculture's Side?

It is not a surprise that the US Environmental Protection Agency has recently had a decidedly retro-agriculture perspective. However, the range and extent of the actions being taken is unprecedented. Illinois farmer and attorney Gary Baise shared his concerns with these policies and the impact on agriculture with the closing session of the National Institute for Animal Agriculture's annual meeting.
Many of the presentations from that event are now online.
