Abstract:

Livestock operations across the United States are universally experiencing regulatory change. The scope and focus of those changes vary, however, depending upon different driving forces in individual states and locales. Livestock operations are a key market for soybeans and, to better understand the potential impacts of environmental regulations on livestock operations, the United Soybean Board (USB) commissioned an audit of these requirements. The audit explored both existing and proposed regulations on a federal level and on a state-by-state basis, with a special emphasis on key states characterized by strong soybean and/or livestock production. This document highlights the results of that audit.
