….although no one is the Ag community talks about it.  Health expert Dr. Joseph Mercola blows the whistle in the practice of dumping sewage sludge on pastures and crop lands.

Several farms have down this in our area despite the serious concerns that have been raised about the practice.  In our experience, the pastures look good the first year…but deteriorate rapidly.  Wonder if the sludge kills the microbes in the soil?  At least I’ve never noticed anyone doing a repeat treatment.
