Aiding New York Producers

A new law provides additional protection for livestock producers in New York. Gov. George Pataki signed a bill that specifies manure processing in agricultural districts as part of a farm operation and is thereby protected against unreasonable challenges. New York state law and the constitution recognize agricultural districts that include plowing, harvesting and fertilizing as protected activities.

New York state law and the constitution recognize agricultural districts that include plowing, harvesting and fertilizing as protected activities. Manure processing now joins that group.
