EPA proposed Greenhouse Gas Tax on Cattle and Hogs!!
« on: November 24, 2008, 08:29:42 PM »
Below is a website link where you can send an email to the epa opposing the proposed tax of cattle and hogs.  I'm not exactly sure, but from what I understand any dairy with over 25 cows would be taxed 175 dollars per cow, beef cattle operations over 100 head would be charged 85 dollars per head, and hog farms with numbers over 200 would be taxed also.  Just looking at input costs right now and the slim margins I can't imagine what taking $85 a head off the top would do to the average cowman.  Please take the time and fill out the form it only takes a few seconds but could really make a big difference.  Thanks

Just found out they would also tax anyone with more than 500 acres of corn.  So much for their cleaner buring ethanol!!
