“We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.” ~Aldo Leopold, A Sand County Almanac

"CAFOs are only profitable because so much of the cost and damage is externalized onto the environment, neighbors and wildlife. The monitoring, supervision, clean-up, restitution, fines are not happening, thus the true cost of CAFOs never find the way onto the balance books." Talking point from the CAFO Conference.
“A thing is right when it tends to preserve the integrity, stability, and beauty of the biotic community. It is wrong when it tends otherwise.”
~Aldo Leopold, 1948. A Sand County Almanac.

December, 2009 Dairy Business Association annual meeting brought Wisconsin citizens to voice their concerns over The Memorandums of Understanding that this agricultural lobbying group for the CAFO industry has with our agencies, both the Department of Natural Resources and the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection.

Citizens were reminding our agencies that the it is the people of Wisconsin that these agencies represent, not large for profit corporate ag industry.

Sustain Rural Wisconsin Network, SRWN, has since put forward a citizen's MOU proposal.
