Herbaceous plants used as animal fodder

What poor countries do now as Environment Protection Agency (EPA) of America declared hay as a pollutant and risk for health of people and environment? Third world countries dairy farms having horses and cattles for business purposes they normally cannot afford other special fodder for their animals they just eat to animals hay as basic food. If government of their countries also declared hay as pollutant then survival of animals dependent on hay would be difficult.
Hay is grass, legume or other herbaceous plants that have been cut, dried, and stored for use as animal fodder particularly for grazing livestock such as cattle, horse, goats, and sheep. Hay is also fed to pets such as rabbits and guinea pigs.
Hay is fed when or where there is not enough pasture or rangeland on to graze an animal, when grazing is unavailable due to weather (such as during the winter) or when lush pasture by itself is too rich for the health of the animal. It is also fed during times when an animal is unable to access pasture, such as when animals are kept in a stable or barn.
Most animals are fed hay in two daily feedings, morning and evening. However, this schedule is more for the convenience of humans, as most grazing animals on pasture naturally consume fodder in multiple feedings throughout the day. Some animals, especially those being raised for meat, may be given enough hay that they simply are able to eat all day. Other animals, especially those that are ridden or driven as working animals, are only free to eat when not working, and may be given a more limited amount of hay to prevent them from getting too fat. The proper amount of hay and the type of hay required varies somewhat between different species. Some animals are also fed concentrated feeds such as grain or vitamin supplements in addition to hay. In most cases, hay or pasture forage must make up 50% or more of the diet by weight.

Shallow rooted annual and perennial herbaceous plants can be planted closer to the drain fields since they do not have invasive roots. Turfgrass can be grown over the drain field and is beneficial since it helps hold the soil in place.
