Action Alert

Polk County: Stop the Construction of Factory Farms!

This action is CLOSED.

Your voice is urgently needed to stop the construction of a factory farm in Polk County. On July 8th, the Polk County Environmental Services Committee will consider whether to approve an ordinance which would allow for a new factory farm, also known as a Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation (CAFO).

Please email the Polk County Environmental Services Director and the County Clerk to express your opposition to having this kind of facility in your town. Instead, urge them to enact an ordinance with strict regulations designed to keep these cruel facilities out of your community.

Animals raised in factory farms suffer terribly, routinely confined to spaces so small that they cannot lie down comfortably, turn around, or spread their wings. Factory farms are also a major source of air and water pollution. They have no place in Polk County.
