Governor Brown: Prevent Another Mega-Dairy Disaster!
Urge Governor Brown to prevent another mega-dairy disaster!
Right now, Oregon is considering whether to allow another new mega-dairy in the state. Easterday Farms is seeking a permit on the site of the now defunct Lost Valley Farms mega-dairy. After over 200 environmental violations, the state revoked Lost Valley Farm's permit. At the very same site, Easterday Farms now wants to open a new mega-dairy with 30,000 cows.
A new mega-dairy would pose huge risks for our state. To make matters worse, the Easterday family is currently tangled in a massive cattle-rustling scandal with Cody Easterday potentially facing up to 20 years in prison for defrauding Tyson of $244 million dollars for the feed and care of cattle that never existed.
Oregonians are standing up in support of a mega-dairy moratorium — we don't need a new mega-dairy! Governor Brown should deny this permit application to protect our independent dairy farms, our air, water and climate, and our rural communities. Sign the petition to urge her to deny the permit for the proposed Easterday Farms mega-dairy!
