Protecting the Environment

North Carolina livestock farmers are dedicated to preserving the land, air and water on which we all depend. As stewards of the farmland, we care deeply about our farms’ impact on the environment and on the communities in which we live.  We are committed to using the latest technology to protect our natural resources.

We follow a stringent set of state environmental regulations for livestock farms and federal environmental regulations designed to ensure efficient use of nutrients and limit any environmental impact.  In addition, North Carolina farmers have been leaders in developing new practices and environmental technologies that better capture and recycle valuable nutrients produced on our farms.
