Dairy Farm Found to Pollute Water

Factory farms are huge polluters of the environment, and dairy farms are no exception. In fact, U.S. District Judge Thomas O. Rice of Spokane, WA “has ruled that a large industrial dairy in eastern Washington has polluted drinking water through its application, storage and management of manure, in a case that could set precedents across the nation.”

Factory farms, also known as concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFO’s), commonly have tens or even hundreds of thousands of farmed animals, who in turn produce large amounts of waste. Farmers improperly discard the waste by spraying it onto fields or dumping it in or near waterways; thus, contaminating soil and water. Billions of tons of manure will continue polluting our home, the Earth, as long as people keep putting taste and profit above compassion and ethics.
