Town of Lincoln extends large farm creation and expansion moratorium

By Tim Kowols       

Farmers running confined animal feeding operations (CAFOs) in the Town of Lincoln will not be able to expand for another six months after the board extended its moratorium earlier this week.  Passed in September 2017, the moratorium forbids CAFOs from constructing new or expanding their operations to add more animals. Town board member Nick Cochart says they needed the additional six months because they have not received any solutions on a number of their findings in order to pass more permanent ordinances.



Cochart says the extension was in part because of the board's conversation with Dairy Dreams owner and Peninsula Pride Farms president Don Niles during the meeting about the potential impact of the moratorium and the positive changes being made in their agricultural practices.
