Changes in Regulations
Changes in federal and state regulations have expanded the definition of an AFO to include some pasture systems that maintain areas of temporary confinement (e.g. calving area, winter feeding area).
Late penalties were required by previous legislation for all requests for inspection after January 2000. Nebraska legislation (LB677) has exempted those recently defined AFOs from any penalties associated with requesting an inspection prior to January 1, 2009.
