MEDFORD, Wis. (AP) — Neighbors of a proposed mega farm in Taylor County are concerned the operation will contaminate and drain water resources in their small community.
North Breeze Dairy wants to operate a farm with 4,000 cows south of Medford.
Retired farmer Neil Micke lives near the 132-acre proposed mega farm. Micke said there’s room somewhere for the huge dairy operation, but not in the Town of Little Black.
North Breeze executive Brian Gerrits told the county’s Land Conservation Committee the company would remedy any impact the farm might have on a neighbor’s well, if that were to happen.
WSAW-TV reports the committee votes Feb. 12 on the mega farm.
