CAFO Permit Update
When everyone sent in their NOI (notice of intent) and your CAFO Fee, you also submitted your CNMP (Comprehensive Nutrient Management Plan) and your NMP (nutrient management plan). We (growers) were advised that if nothing changed in your operation, then your CNMP would stay the same. Your NMP, how much litter you will generate over the next 3 years should be updated, and additional information requested such as water shed etc. was filled out and submitted.
