Dairy Business Association against proposed livestock siting rule changes

Changes to the livestock siting rules in the state could make a bad problem worse for some dairy farmers in Door and Kewaunee Counties. Twelve different hearings at six unique sites are being held to talk about the changes which include updating nutrient standards and new odor management systems based on property line setbacks. Dairy Business Association Government Affairs Director John Holevoet says the changes are pretty dramatic to the way livestock siting has been handled before whether you are a small or a large dairy.

Livestock siting rule hearings are taking place across the state over the coming weeks, including Thursday’s sessions in Oshkosh. Holevoet hopes a common middle ground can come out of these meetings.




Earlier this week, we spoke to Town of Lincoln chairperson Cory Cochart about his thoughts on his thoughts of the possible changes.
