|CAFOs in Kewaunee County Wisconsin|
Concentrated (or Confined) Agricultural Feeding Operation are CAFOs.
Devastating Wisconsin lakes, rivers, streams and aquifers, the issue is finally appearing on the radar of the Wisconsin gubernatorial campaign screen.
Babies with Ecoli, water wells contaminated with viruses, stench on the beach, declining property values, dead streams, toxic lakes, fear and Solastalgia Sickness. These are the consequences of living near CAFOs and their dumping 10s of millions of gallons of liquid cow manure straight into the environment every year.
We can thank the Diary Business Association (DBA)—the DBA's sock pockets, Scott Walker, Scott Krug, the Republican Party, several in the Democratic Party—all in political thrall of the myth and money of the DBA while the Wisconsin Dept. of Tourism presents "communities along Lake Michigan ... perennial vacation favorites with a true coastal flavor, complete with sandy beaches" with no apparent sense of irony.
Here is the reality, exemplified in Kewaunee County (northeastern Wisconsin) where 16 CAFOs are sited and more Dairy production is planned, per Scott Walker's Dairy 30x20 Initiative, a Soviet-style agricultural plan with no consideration of the environmental and health devastation.
