    Default EPA declares hay is a pollutant

    EPA declares hay a pollutant in effort to drive small, mid-sized family cattle ranchers out of business

    The assault against American industry and individual livelihood continues -- and no, it is not coming from Al-Qaeda or other foreign terrorists. A recent report from R-CALF USA, an advocacy group for American cattle producers, says the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has declared harmless cattle hay a "pollutant," which is part of the agency's agenda to squelch family-scale cattle ranches in favor of corporately-owned, mega-sized feedlot operations.

    At the recent 12th Annual R-CALF USA Convention in Rapid City, SD, an audience member asked Mike Callicrate, a Kansas cattle feeder, if the EPA had, indeed, declared hay a pollutant. His affirmative answer was startling to many, but not necessarily surprising in light of the US government's apparent agenda to destroy every single producing sector in the nation and to reduce the country to a poverty-stricken, corporately-dominated wasteland.

    "Now that EPA has declared hay a pollutant, every farmer and rancher that stores hay, or that leaves a broken hay bale in the field, is potentially violating EPA rules and subject to an EPA enforcement action," responded Callicrate. "How far are we going to let this agency go before we stand up and do something about it?"

    Callicrate currently operates what is considered a mid-sized cattle ranch, and was ostracized by some of the nation's largest beef packers back in 1998 for exposing their illegitimate buying practices. Callicrate ended up having to cease operations for two years, but later reopened as a direct marketer of meat to consumers.

    "I believe the EPA's enforcement action is a premeditated effort by EPA to partner with the beef packers to finish the job the beef packers couldn't do alone," added Callicrate, referring to EPA's failure to enforce the same rules for large meat packers like JBS-Brazil and Cargill (the two largest beef packing operations in the country).

    Between 2008 and 2010, 45 small to mid-sized family cattle operations were forced out of business, according to R-CALF USA. During the same time, the nation's largest feedlots expanded their operations, and now own and feed roughly 25 percent of the nation's cattle.

    "EPA is turning a blind eye toward the mega-feedlots that are a real risk for pollution and, instead, is antagonizing small to mid-sized family operations in an effort to help their packer-partners capture the entire live cattle supply chain away from family farm and ranch operations."

    They were going to try and regulate dust created by farming operations too. I don't know where that went. One of those "if ya hadn't heard anything about it lately, it is probably a good thing" deals.

    Off a cliff. We have WAY too many employees in the public dole. Too many agencies, branches, etc, etc, etc! Add that to the "too many chiefs and not enough (working) Indians".

    How about when I mow my yard? That makes dust/hay!!!

    These freaking people are the ones that have to create this bullshit to keep a job!

    As hard as it is for some of us to believe, history books say there were morons just like you around in 1776 too. But they took care of those asswipes. We should be so lucky.

    Funniest thing about all this is that according to the Calif department of motor vehicles, the ONLY thing that can LEGALLY fly out of a truck on the highway and not be considered a hazard, or littering is hay. Even clean water spilled on the highway is a violation. Flying hay from hay bails in the back of a pickup is not. On big rig haulers they are now required to cover the hay, but not 100%.
    I guess Cali will have to rewrite their vehicle code book. That ought to cost the cali tax payers about 50-60 million in printing fees, and the state assembly should wrestle with this for 2-3 months on the tax payers dime.

    Feathers from live birds being transported can also fly out legally.

    So we have hay straw, feathers, and add to those "leaves from LIVE trees".... I thought clean water was also on the list for Cal. I remember, "feathers from live birds, leaves from live trees, and clear, clean water" from the DMV rule/law book. (the thick $3.00 one from DMV every couple of years)..... Refer trailers frequently drop condensation water on the roadway, but I can see how even that could be a hazard to motorcycles not expecting a wet road.....

    I also heard some big cheese of the EPA has resigned amid reports of "secret" e mail addresses using phony names for inter agency communications... Allegedly there are thousands of these communications, some of which are all to obvious to the EPA's hidden agenda to shut down the American industries/economy.... I haven't seen the text, but the report I saw said they were very damaging, and this upper management person resigned in lieu of having to explain her use of "phony" e mails. One subject mentioned was false information about MMGW as a tool for writing bullshit regulations....
