Agriculture Fears Possible "Cow Tax"
DECEMBER 6, 2008
4, 2008 by the Environmental Protection Agency to charge a fee for air-polluting cows and hogs. It would require farms or ranches with more than 25 dairy cows, 50 beef cattle or 200 hogs to pay an annual fee of about $175 for each dairy cow, $87.50 Remember cows "emit" methane.) I have a hard time believing that there would actually be a cow tax, but I would certainly support it. Tags: global warming methane cows us agribusiness
