Document Description
This project proposes CUP 07-004 to allow the expansion of the permitted dairy herd to 2,400 animals (2,000 milk cows and 400 support stock). This would represent an increase of 1,390 animals from that originally permitted under CUP 03-001 and 1,015 animals from existing numbers. The proposed project would include construction of a new freestall barn. Construction of the proposed dairy barn would occur north of existing facilities and would convert approximately 7 acres of existing cropland to active dairy facilities. With the proposed expansion, the dairy operator would use adjacent fields to receive wastewater; therefore, the acreage of cropland receiving wastewater would increase from 130 acres (existing) to 278 acres (proposed).
