CAFO stands for “Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation.” When you think CAFO, think “industrial operations housing tens of thousands of animals being produced for human consumption” — not Old McDonald’s farm. There are many fundamental problems with CAFOs, but the issues that most concern Riverkeepers are runoff from improperly stored waste in these facilities and the amount of water they consume.
