We better check who are the ones really putting out the bad gas! If these type of things keep passing we are in serious trouble in this country! Tied so called conservation compliance to crop insurance so some wildlife extremist can try to take our farms so 2-5 times normal of ducks can swim and we can drown. Where is our constitution? Now cow putting off to much gas! These guys have no business managing anything, let alone our farms!

Are wetlands not the largest emitter of methane? Are fish and ducks, pooping in lakes, a smelly major player? Is the concept of stirring up mulch piles containing yard waste, to reduce P. run-off, generating methane emissions? I believe in conscious conservation practices, however this appears to be another program of government control and job security efforts which contradicts efforts and recommendations of others with-in the same department. Does one assume the likes of W. Buffet have a patent on, install your own, cow fart meters and agency approved chicken pooper scoopers?
