The Hazards of Liquid Manure Tanks

Liquid manure storage tanks widely used by the animal agricultural industry pose a health and environmental hazard. Many deaths have been caused by the fuming gases of these tanks, including the most recent death of dairyman David Stoltzfus, who tumbled into an enclosed pit Oct. 16. A new study, funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Natural Resources Conservation Service directed to find a solution to the dangers of these manure pits, is taking place at 15 dairy farms in PA.

The solution is much simpler, less expensive and rests on each of us. If we didn’t exploit God's animals for food then these manure pits wouldn't exist. Stopping the consumption of animal products and replacing them with plant-based alternatives will make liquid manure tanks a thing of the past.
