If a person from another country can do this, why can't American dairies?
I'm from a dairy farm and we milk 100 twice a day. We only receive 17 cents a quart for milk. What do you pay? I have to give them their props for being so hard working and
profitable. Keep up the great work!

There's only two things I hate in this world. People who are intolerant of other people's cultures and the Dutch.

Maybe he could use the manure like the guy on Dirtiest Jobs and make biodegradable flower/vegetable pots you plant directly in the ground. At least the recycling process would be continued, users soil would be enriched and the plants will be very happy

Glad to see there is a town left in this state that has common sense. The technology and facilities available to farmers these days has ways of filtering the waste as to not harm the environment.

My kitchen is full of antique milk bottles and dairy related stuff,including many photos of Indy "500" winnwers in Victory Lane drinking the coveted bottle of cold milk.So dairy farms and hard working farming families are cool with me.

In Econ 101 we learned about supply vs. demand. I just hope and pray that with this increased "supply" of cows, the demand for manure will decrease and we'll all see some relief from these over the top, outrageous manure prices we've all been forced to pay as of late.

Gary Moody - I apologize for my comment but it was not intended as a bad thing against these people. They are hardworking and motivated and I wish all people from other countries coming here would do the same.

This man evidently came here with some money!!- how are the cows in Kentucky being used?? Having known people from the Netherlands, they generally know how to get the most from their lands and return value to it!! They will try their best to please neighbors - if you tick them off - any hopes for the future is gone. Why can't Ameican born farmers do the same?? I would be curious to know what know of education/background this man has such he has been able to get so many to support his expansion. Definitely going to try to see this operation when I visit my sister in Indiana!! Gee, amazing what a legal immigrant can do - give up his home, job, etc to come to the US - wonder if he was part of the immigrant lottery system which is legal!! We must stop illegals from entering!!
