Cows say: Thank You Congress!
The recently passed cromnibus bill has goodies for everyone, even cows will benefit.
According to the New York Times, farmers will not have to report to the govement cows that fart or belch.
Here is what the NYT reported:
"The [cromnibus ] bill says the government cannot require farmers to report
“greenhouse gas emissions from manure management systems.” Nor can it
require ranchers to obtain greenhouse gas permits for “methane
emissions” produced by bovine flatulence or belching."
