Will my cattle have to be fenced out of streams?

No.  This is not the law, but is highly recommended to help with water quality issues.  ADEM can require this if they show water quality impairment due to excess numbers of cattle in a stream.  ADEM has the authority to prohibit anything that they think is a water quality violation, anything from gas/oil, poultry, cattle, urban - anything.  Rotational grazing systems are a good way to help with this.
