Sustain Rural Wisconsin Network
Wisconsin is in crisis with the ever-increasing number of Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFO's) being permitted in our state. With a record number of dairy CAFO's currently in operation and the increase of hog facilities being introduced, Wisconsin is in dire need of Legislation that will protect the health, safety, and welfare of its citizens from the water, air, and land contamination these facilities bring.
The Sustain Rural Wisconsin Network is leading the charge with their call for a statewide moratorium on the construction and expansion of industrial-sized concentrated animal feeding operations in Wisconsin. You, as concerned citizens of Wisconsin, can be active in this initiative by spreading the word and encouraging others to get involved.

Pre-written resolution available to state municipalities and organizations to adopt and present to state legislators.
