Impact of the Regulatory Environment Facing Florida Dairy Farrmers

According to a sample of farmers, waste disposal activities on dairy operations are most negatively impacted by government regulations.

Increased flexibility and more common sense in rule implementation were the main suggestions made by farmers to improve the current regulatory system.
