Court Supports Feeding Laws

The Kansas Supreme Court upheld a lower court ruling that state law has precedence over county law in regulating confined animal feeding operations (CAFOs). The court found that regulations proposed by the Norton County Commission conflicted with a law providing uniform, statewide CAFO rules. The Kansas Livestock Association and three of its members brought the suit.
