CUP 12-014 proposes to bring the existing dairy facility into compliance with Merced County's permit requirements, and to expand the existing diary so that the modified dairy would house a total of 5,100 animals. This would represent an increase of 2,300 animals from existing numbers. The proposal would also include modifications to the active dairy facilities to accommodate the proposed herd increase, including the removal of an existing shade structure and milk barn, and the construction of two freestall barns, a milk barn, hay barn, sprinkler pen, open lot corrals, and additions to the two existing freestall barns. Construction of the proposed structures would convert approximately 11.3 acres of agricultural land from field crops to active dairy facilities, increasing the area of operation from 26 to 37.3 acres.
