He had to get approval because his neighbors will bear the burden if something goes wrong. The zoning board had no illusions about who was going to be working there.
Umm...the Willemsen's DO live in the house in front of the dairy operation, BOB-O. We see him and his wonderful family all of the time Nice of you to try to get people to side with you by using absolute lies.
By the way, he had to go before the BZA much like many people do for even building a home. Get your facts straight and stop blasting people. You are clearly an extremist.

The reason these people are coming from Europe to open up the FACTORY FARMS is because Europe is clsoing them all down due to POLLUTION! Wake UP people! Even vegetarians can't eat safe food becasue of the E Coli caused by DAIRY FARM RUN OFF! Another Bagged Salad Recall this week. They have to wash this stuff in BLEACH to make it safe and you still get sick eating vegetables contamianted with crap.

I liked "Listen to the Facts" comment.
For anybody who likes to crunch numbers, here are some interesting figures given at the BZA hearing.
The total water usage was given as 400 gallons per week. The number of cattle is 6,000.
Divide 400 gallons by 6,000 cattle to get the average weekly water consumption per cow.
Hint: There's 128 oz. to the gallon.

Apparantly, the Willemsens have a special cow that can survive on only 8.5 ounces of water per week.
Amazing!
