Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) have lowered prices and increased production but with economic, ecological, and environmental costs that can only be solved by enforced legislation. Discussing this recent agricultural trend, Environmental Management of Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) provides practical information on the concepts and practices involved in the operation and maintenance of CAFOs, paying particular attention to regulatory requirements and compliance as well as best available technology. Including extensive references, it serves as an important resource for personnel involved in animal feeding operations.
