Three Ways To Use This Guide

On the fly

You are faced with a situation that is developing very quickly. You need to act without delay. Print the Checklist and go through the steps outlined there to the best of your ability.

Urgent, but not in a panic

You know that a proposal for a mega barn is in the works, but you have time to get organized. Review the checklist first. Then read each section of the guide as you take on the various tasks involved in confronting a factory farm.

Digging in for the long haul

You are dealing with a long-term problem, either with a persistent proponent, or an expansion of an existing barn. Use the checklist and the written sections of the handbook as well as the in-depth resources that are listed and available on the internet or at the library.
