"Court Grants EPA Delay on Animal Waste Emissions Reporting"

"A federal court granted the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) a victory Thursday, allowing regulators to give U.S. livestock producers more time to comply with a mandate on reporting emissions from animal waste.

The decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals will give farms and animal producers until at least May 1 to begin reporting emissions — mostly ammonia and hydrogen sulfide — emitted by animal waste.

In a Jan 19 motion, the EPA argued that farmers were not yet ready to meet the requirements of the mandate which was scheduled to take effect Jan 22."
