Particulate matters

By Jennifer M. Latzke

Spend five minutes outside in the rural parts of the High Plains and three things will become apparent. One, there's a lot of wind. Two, where there's a lot of wind, there's often a lot of dust.

And, three, the daily work that must be done in the feedlots, fields, farms and ranches in rural America-to feed and clothe not just the United States but also the world-can't stop because of wind and dust.

And yet, the Environmental Protection Agency's current review of the National Ambient Air Quality Standards of the Clean Air Act could result in more stringent standards for coarse particulate matter. In other words, dust regulations are cropping up again, and cattlemen are starting to take notice.
