For farms not defined as Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs) or Concentrated Animal Operations (CAOs), Manure Management Plans can be prepared by the farmer, although the farmer may benefit from getting assistance by those trained and experienced in developing plans.   CAFO (Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation) The Tragedy of Industrial Animal Factories.

    In just the past 20 years, there has been dramatic change in animal agricultural production in Missouri and the United States. These changes have included a significant increase in the overall size of individual operations, an increase in the number of animals raised per operation and a shift towards raising poultry and certain livestock within production barns. While concentrated animal feeding operations have become increasingly prevalent throughout the United States, they tend to concentrate in particular regions. There are five top hog-producing states in the U.S which cumulatively represent 67 percent of hog production and the majority of swine concentrated animal feeding operations (United States.

Forty-three (43) states now have some sort of statutory protection for farmers from nuisance. Some of these states (such as Iowa, Oklahoma, Wyoming, Tennessee, and Kansas) also provide specific protection to animal feeding operations (AFOs) and CAFOs.
