AFO Forms

This page is designed for people who are familiar with state requirements for animal feeding operations and know exactly what form they need. If you have an existing operation and want to know what forms are needed for day-to-day requirements, go to the menu on the left and choose Current Requirements under the appropriate operation type. If you are planning to build, modify or expand an operation, go to one of the Construction Requirements sections to find out what forms are required.
