Max Armstrong reports on news that officials have decided to take action against livestock farms in the Netherlands. The country has a nitrogen minister who has said the government will give farmers 100% of the farm value to quit. The country can also shut farms down because they are considered polluters. Max outlines the details of the program that aims to end these “key polluters.” Livestock farms are targeted in the European Union as key source of greenhouse gases.
Max Armstrong's Farm Progress America is a daily look at key issues in agriculture. It is produced and presented by Max Armstrong, veteran farm broadcaster and host of This Week in Agribusiness.
