The Michigan Cattlemen’s Association says environmental issues outside of their control are causing concern.

Policy committee chair Matt Germane, a producer from mid-Michigan, tells Brownfield producers are worried about what proposed standards on per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances or PFAS at the state and federal could mean if the ‘forever chemicals’ are found on their farms.

“Condemning their meat is something that may be necessary from a human health standpoint, but it shouldn’t put that individual farmer out of business because there are a lot of upstream businesses that contributed to this problem which should also be involved in the solution,” he shares.
