When rules for about 1,600 pig and cattle producers across the state were tightened this month, Jeff Cook didn’t blink. Cook, part owner of Cook Hog Farm LLC, a 4,000-hog operation in Delphi, said he’s used to dealing with new rules.

The latest: Among other requirements, there are new restrictions on how much manure can be spread on the ground — an effort to reduce fish kills and other negative environmental affects.

“You just feel like you’re regulated to death,” Cook said.

The new rules apply to all the state’s confined feeding operations and concentrated animal feeding operations.
