Cow Tax Comments
Dec 15, 2008
I live in Scotland county Missouri and have a cow calf operation. After thinking about EPA's taxation idea related to methane and cows, I wonder whether they will tax the conservation department of each state for all of the deer and turkeys that they say they own, that we feed and house????
Am I ready to pay a global warming tax on animals? NO! The latest cause of GW (global warming) is cow droppings. If this is such a big problem - before PETA organizes any more protests, the US Ag department should research the system used in Germany. All waste goes into a methane recycling program. Every farm employs the same program. There is no stink in the air, and the electricity produced about fuels the entire country. Why can't America try this idea, at least in the feedlots here in Western KS? It would be the answer for 2 major problems in society - methane pollution, and electricity.
