The EPA is proposing a livestock tax on beef and dairy cattle as well as hogs, because they’re allegedly contributing to greenhouse gas emissions.  Farmers think something stinks about this proposal.  Many farmers who run a small herd say they don’t make enough at the sale barn on each cow to pay the $87.50 per head tax that the EPA is proposing.  Farmers don’t have to pay if they have less than 50- cows, as opposed to the farmer with 51 who has to pay a per head fee, some catle farmers say this is highly discriminatory.  For dairy cattle, it’s $175 a head.  Hogs are cheaper, they would only be taxed $20.  Details are available at the Environmental Protection Agency’s site on the web.
