FACTORY FARMING PROBLEMS & SOLUTIONS IN MICHIGAN WITH LYNN HENNING

Factory farming is a growing problem in Michigan. Issues include the harmful impacts it has on small family farmers, farm animals, the climate, and the natural resources of Michigan. Lynn Henning is the Water Rangers Program Director for Socially Responsible Agricultural Project and will discuss some of the problems and solutions to factory farming. Lynn emerged as a leading voice calling on state and federal authorities to hold livestock factory farms accountable to water and air quality laws. With her husband, she farms 300 acres in Lenawee County, Michigan, within 10 miles of 12 CAFOs. As a result of her work to stop pollution from factory farms and to hold state and federal agencies accountable to enforcing laws, Lynn won the 2010 Goldman Environmental Prizeā€”the environmental equivalent of the Nobel Prize.
