[Note: I visited with the Thompsons at their farm during my visit to Narrogin. While time did not permit me to do the full scale story that Jo Nova does below, I'll point out that I grew up in farm country of the Midwest, I milked cows when I was 11. I also cleaned toilets at the county fair at 14 (a job nobody else would do but it paid $100 for the week, a fortune for me then). I know what smells and how. If you want to smell a poorly waste managed feedlot, try driving on I-5 near Coalinga, and get a whiff of the Harris Ranch feedlot.
While I'm on the subject of issues in Australia having to do with environmental red tape, I'd like to remind everyone of this story from Australia's terrible wildfires: “We’ve lost two people in my family because you dickheads won’t cut trees down…” - Anthony]
