The AAPs are the base level of management required for all farms in Vermont. They are designed to be easy to implement, low-cost solutions for addressing water resource concerns. In April 2006, a revised AAP Rule was adopted. For example, a 10-foot vegetated buffer is now required along surface water. There are also new provisions for mortality burial and composting and for the management of livestock on pastures where access is given to surface water.
