Document Description
The existing Blue Sky Dairy is located on approximately 33 acres of an existing farm totaling approximately 470 acres. Approximately 325 acres of the project site are used for crop production and the application of manure process water and/or solid manure. Conditional Use Permit CUP13-013 proposes to expand the existing dairy so that the modified dairy would house a total of 5,366 animals, including 2,750 milk cows. This would represent an increase of 1,550 milk cows, or an increase of 3,966 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.
