Document Description
Request to expand the herd of an existing dairy facility located on three parcels across a total of 135.5± acres, in the A-2-40 (General Agriculture) zoning district. The applicant proposes to expand the herd from 442 mature cows to 1,500 mature cows, consisting of primarily milk cows and no dry cows. Under this request, the applicant also proposes to increase support stock number from 600 to 1,200. The increase to support stock will consist of 400 heifers 7-14 months old; 400 heifers 4-8 months old; and 400 calves 4-6 months old. Additionally, the applicant proposes to construct a 10,140± square-foot free stall barn on APN 058-016-016, corrals totaling 5± acres in area on APN 058-015-012, and a new waste water pond 1.3± acres in size on APN 058-015-008. The applicant anticipates an increase of 2,184± cubic feet of additional manure per day generated on the facility from the proposed herd expansion for a total of 3,866± cubic feet of manure per day. Nutrients produced from the herd will be utilized to fertilize approximately 72± acres of irrigated cropland located across the project site. Hours of operation are 24-hours a day, seven days a week. There is a single-family dwelling developed on APN 058-016-016 and three single-family dwellings on APN 058-015-012 for a total of four single-family dwellings, which are occupied by employees and their families. There are currently four employees; the proposed request is not expected to increase the number of employees. All four existing employees live onsite; no additional housing is proposed as part of this request. The applicant does not anticipate any customers onsite. The dairy currently receives three visits for tallow and veterinary services every two weeks, and a total of four milk and feed truck trips per day. The proposed request is expected to increase the number of feed truck trips by one for a combined total of five milk and feed truck trips per day as part of this request; no increase to the current milk truck trips or visitors are proposed. The existing facility is currently improved with 125,447± square feet of dairy and residential building space and 20.5± acres of corrals, storage ponds, and feed storage. The site is served by private wells and septic system and has access to County-maintained W Linwood Avenue and S Mitchell Road.
