Oppose the proliferation of corporate factory hog farms in densely populated rural areas, near rivers and streams and recreational waters, and near drinking water supplies.
To direct the State of Alabama to improve and enforce the CAFO regulations.
To protect the social infrastructure of Rural Alabama.

Specific Issues:

For 9 years SMCC helped in blocking ALFA's efforts to pass the so called "Family Farm Preservation Act," better known as the "Hog Bill," because from the first year the Bill was introduced, SMCC would not have helped to block the Bill if ALFA had agreed to exclude the Hog CAFO's.

SMCC recently celebrated their 10th year anniversary, very unusual for an all-volunteer organization.

Our current issue is to get more high school students involved in water monitoring of ponds, wells, creeks, streams and the river in our area, in an effort to protect our water supply.
