The provisions of the law are pretty broad. The way I read this, it would apply to logging on public lands (fiber).

25 ity owner's express consent or pursuant to judicial process or statu-
26 tory authorization, makes audio or video recordings of the conduct of an
27 agricultural production facility's operations;

(a) "Agricultural production" means activities associated with the
33 production of agricultural products for food, fiber, fuel and other
