City commissioners recently agreed to study relaxation of City ordinances regulating animal husbandry and truck farming within city limits. I will, in three parts, present the potential merits, and definite drawbacks, of any reasonable revision. The first part discusses “user” issues.

One benefit discussed is to allow 4H young adults to participate in animal projects. I believe 4H is a wonderful organization that teaches youth responsibility, finance, veterinary science, and other qualities. However, if the ordinance is relaxed to allow 4H youth, it must allow everyone to participate or it would be discriminatory. And who would enforce any such separation? It has to be all or none.
