European farmers are fed up with progressive policies and regulations

The EU is no stranger to ag controversy lately.

Farmers have been protesting across Europe for some time now, and it is once again heating up surrounding elections in the region.

Economic researchers in Ireland say that the situation with farmers has been brewing for a while, and farmers are fed up with fast-track climate policies. Regulations around emissions, water quality, fertilizer usage, and animal waste have all been hot topics in Europe.

Just recently, residents made their message clear during Parliamentary elections when membership shifted to the right, and more progressive members were voted out.
