This email is in response to your recent public records request regarding copies of permits issued within VT for the purpose of feeding garbage to swine and other livestock. The feeding of prohibited waste to swine is not allowed in Vermont, and the Vermont Agency of Agriculture does not have a permitting program for feeding of garbage to swine or any other livestock species. As a result, this Agency does not maintain any records pertinent to your request. Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any further questions.


Please note, effective immediately, my new email address is<>
