A Review of Georgia's Animal Feeding Operation Regulations (B 1257) University of Georgia Extension This document is intended to be an accurate outline of Georgia’s Animal Waste Regulations at the time of publication, and is not a comprehensive citation. The new regulations require changes in the way AFOs do business. The focus on management of nutrients can improve profitability by better use of nutrients produced on the farms and reduced need for fertilizer purchase. There may also be opportunities for composting and/or selling manures for off-farm uses. Although the new regulations require more record keeping, the records may help improve farm management and productivity. While these regulations may appear complex, they are designed to protect both the farmer and the environment. Compliance with these regulations will provide the farmer with documentation that they are making a conscientious reasonable effort to operate their farm in a safe and environmentally sound manner. 2016-11-07 10:38:58.017 2006-06-02 14:35:39.0 A Review of Georgia's Animal Feeding Operation Regulations | Publications | UGA Extension Skip to content
