Document Description
Request to expand an existing dairy facility, operating on a 75.25± acre parcel, in the A-2-40 (General Agriculture) zoning district, by increasing the herd size from 680 to 1,100. The request proposes to expand the approved number of combined milk and dry cows from 570 (470 milk and 100 dry) to 975 (800 milk and 175 dry) and calves from 110 to 125. Heifers are currently housed at an off-site heifer facility and will remain housed off-site if this request is approved. Nutrients produced from the herd will be utilized to fertilize approximately 55 farmable acres on the same parcel. No construction is proposed. The existing dairy facility will continue to utilize a scrape cleaning system and contains all the necessary corrals, feed storage, waste containment, and utilities necessary to accommodate the proposed herd modification. Trips that occur on a per-weekly basis are anticipated to increase from six to 10 and monthly trips are proposed to decrease from 10 to three. The overall trip changes per month are anticipated to increase slightly from 160 to 169, with seasonal trips, like fertilizer and manure hauling services, being called as needed. Employee numbers are proposed to remain at four. The parcel is enrolled in Williamson Act Contract No. 76-2127. The site is served by private domestic well and septic systems and receives irrigation water from Oakdale Irrigation District. The site takes access off of County-maintained Langworth Road. The Early Consultation referral circulated between April 12, 2019, through April 30, 2019, indicated that the project proposed to add a new storage pond; however, this information was incorrect as no new ponds are proposed.
