This project proposes CUP 10-005 to bring the existing dairy facility into compliance with Merced County's permit requirements; there would be no expansion of the dairy herd or facilities with the proposed project. The existing animal confinement facility is located on ~157 acres of the 1,995-acre project site. ~ 1,648 acres of the project site are currently used for the production of crops, including forage crops and pistachios; all of the cropland receives manure process water and/or solid manure. There are ~8,050 animals at the dairy, including 4,000 milk cows and support stock. The milk cows and support stock would continue to be housed in open corrals with freestall barns and a flush system. There would be no physical improvements necessary for the proposed project.
