Livestock production can implement a few effects on the surrounding environment
When manure is left on the ground, the bugs on the ground are potentially at a health risk. If animals are sick and given treatments, remnants can be found in the manure and be eaten by insects.
During the rainy seasons, there is the possibility that manure can be rinsed into a nearby stream if there is one. This manure can effect both the water quality, as well as the animals living in the stream.
These streams, depending on how contaminated, can lead to larger bodies of water and negatively effect those areas as well. Studies have shown that coral reefs have already been effected.
Neighborhoods are at risk of contamination if those streams run through or near a neighborhood whether it be through eating those effected animals or drinking the contaminated water.
Gases released from the animals themselves can/are negatively effected the air quality both near and far.
The poor air quality not only directly effects the planet, but it also implements negative health effects on surrounding community members.
