No other event has had such an impact on the history of the HAS than the Manure Act, introduced by then Minister Braks in 1984 in response to the manure issue. It was a wake-up call for the entire country, and shook HAS to its very foundations.
The sector was forced to look for new methods to regain its balance. HAS decided to forge a new direction, leaving traditions behind and adopting a broader outlook. It was a difficult process, that took a lot of effort to get off the ground.
