The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has announced that the agency will extend the air emissions consent agreement sign-up period to Friday, August 12, 2005. The landmark agreement was reached between the livestock sector and the EPA and establishes a nationwide air monitoring study that will result in the definition of air emissions standards for livestock operations.
