It is important that the farmers take interest in the environment when it comes to removal of the animal waste. If they do not make sure that the waste end up in the streams or creeks then the farmers are taking a chance to get themselves sick or the community they live in. They will also be taking a chance of the area that they live in for them to be rejected from being able to have farm animals. It is very important that they look out for others instead of just themselves. Most farmers will re-use the waste for the fields or gardens. The crops need to be rotated from year to year. You do not want to grow corn in the same section from year to year because the corn takes so many minerals out of the soil as it is growing.
