(MICHIGAN LIVE) The Michigan Commission of Agriculture and Rural Development voted in a special session April 28 to adopt changes that make all farm livestock operations, no matter how small, subject to the rules–and creates a category of land where no animals will be in compliance.

As reactions begin, a Sierra Club representative said the vote is a blow to small farmers by stripping them of state protection afforded other farmers; Michigan Farm Bureau said it strengthens protection of all farmers by trying to reduce land use conflicts.

The Right to Farm Act was created in 1981 to protect commercial farm at a time when city people were moving into rural areas and then complaining about conditions typical to farming, according to the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development. The law protects the farmer from nuisance lawsuits as long as the operation is conforming to Generally Accepted Agricultural and Management Practices laid out by the state.

yup.gif This is in your face Agenda 21. There are areas set aside for this, and if you're not located in this designated agricultural zones, you're SOL.
Like so many other crap agendas, this is being pushed incrementally in Fabian fashion. If the new order came all at once the plebes would have an uprising. coffeetime.gif

Quote:"Farmers are reasonable people and the Right to Farm Act was created because people were moving to the nuisance, moving to the country," Kapp said. That was true back in 2000 when the siting guidelines were first drafted, but now, he said, "here we have a case where the nuisance (of farm animals) is coming to the people.

I hope they can find a way to make this work. To elaborate, it would appear that farm animals are moving into urban areas where people originally preferred to live without livestock nuisances (offensive smells, etc.) and, so, I hope they can try to appease the majority of people.

"Why do hunters like to kill animals? Why don't they buy store meat where no animals were hurt to make it?"

I think those are everywhere. chuckle.gif

It's sad they're making it more difficult for people to keep chickens or goats or whatever in their backyard. It's becoming more popular to do so and it wouldn't surprise me that's why they're acting on it now. Usually only takes one well connected asshole to complain and create this sort of crap.

It looks like Michigan's gov't (DNR only?) can't get it's act together, nor explain, nor define specifics (pigs as invasive species) to the satisfaction of 'the people'...it's very suspicious, unless this has to do with the spread of swine flu.

on the other hand: if we all decided to go on a hunting spree there would be no animals left.

This will continue until the street-level enforcers of these Orwellian laws are found with their throats cut.
Too bad the street-level enforcers are the lowest rung on the ladder of tyranny.
