Guilherme Brasil Dairy Expansion Project
Document Type
EIR - Draft EIR
Present Land Use
Dairy/Irrigated agriculture/residences; Z: General Agricultural A-1; GPD: Agricultural

Document Description
The project sponsor has applied for a Conditional Use Permit to bring the existing dairy facility in compliance with Merced County's permit requirements, and to expand the existing dairy so that the modified dairy would house a total of 2,000 animals (937 milk cows and 1,063 support stock). This would represent an increase of 445 animals from existing numbers. Most of the proposed construction would occur within the existing footprint of the facility on land that has previously been graded for construction of the existing facilities. The proposed project would include construction of: 2 freestalls and associated corrals; covered maternity and hospital corrals; six corrals; concreting and cover for the feed slab; removal of 2 diesel generators; installation of power lines; a mechanical separator pad; and a setting basin.
