An expansion of an existing legal non-conforming hwifer feedlot operation to a new dairy facility. The project proposes a maximum of 3,937 total animal units (2,350 Holstein milk cows plus support stock) on 87 acres of 810.5 acre site in the AE-40 (Exclusive Agricultural - 40 acre minimum) Zone. The proposed dairy facility will have freestall housing with a flush system for the milking herd and the support stock will be housed in shaded corrals with flushed alleys. The balance of the site would remain in current agricultural production as farmable acres of corn/wheat silage (double cropped). The current feedlot operation has 529 total animal units on a 555 acre site.
