17.844 LIVESTOCK PRODUCTION POLICY.

(a) The policy of the state is to promote livestock production on family farms under a broad range of management systems that are environmentally sound and meet all legal requirements of all jurisdictions, including federal, state, county, town, city, and watershed district requirements.

(b) In order to promote livestock production on family farms, state agencies when appropriate shall, to the extent allowed by law:

(1) promote the establishment of livestock enterprises on family farms;

(2) promote environmental protection and water quality improvement through increased livestock production that results in controlling runoff through increased acreage of hay, pasture, and small grains; and

(3) promote more farms to use agronomically applied manure to increase the water holding capacity of the soil and control erosion.
