In January of 2005, the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released the notice of the Animal Feeding Operations Consent Agreement and Final Order, offering animal feeding operations (AFOs) the opportunity to participate and help fund a nationwide emissions monitoring study that will be used to develop methodologies for estimating emissions from AFOs.
