This is goin to open the doors for people to sue hog farms all over missouri. Even ones that have benn in business for decades. Before the the people who are suin' lived there. plus there are strict laws on lagoons and the borders around them.

Is this a new hog plant? If these people moved there after it was in place then they should move away. This is just another reason why premiums are so high in MO.

Why didn't the people move after they received the first award? If the odor was so bad, why did they build new houses on the same sites? The only answer to this is GREED!! The problem here is that these people are risking the jobs and livelyhood of THOUSANDS of employees of this company and the economic stability of the nothern part of Missouri. But why should they care, they got their money. They will never have to work for a living, unlike the THOUSANDS of employees they may be putting out of work.

The only one coming out ahead is the jackass attorney, this should have never happened ,they got paid once and look now more money for the attorney because the hog co is appeling the decision i hope these dummies get nothing but a shaft from the attorney and then the attorney drops over dead.

Agree, they should have taken their first award and moved. This is our crooked justice system. Here is your license and your permit, you are operating within the law, now you have to pay these people money because of the odor. What kind of bacon is this??????(would have said bologna but we are talking pork here)

If you think their is no smell then you should move closer. Just because they put these places in the country this is not to say that people do not live nearby. The odors that eminate from these places are horrible. If they are so great lets put one right downtown say in kirksville or milan. Why do the people out of town have to put up with such a horrible odor. There is a big difference from a couble of hundred hogs and thousands of hogs, the odors are a definate problem.

I am glad to see these people finally won what the deserve. These hog farms is all corporate greed.

They havent won anything yet dummy. remember appeals cut into the people who think they won pockets and i promise you this the attorney will be the winner he will get 70 to 80 percent of the money. And heres one for your little brain to ponder. You cant put in a operation like this into effect without the ok from the COUNTY, STATE, and FEDERAL rules and as i have read this it looks like they where operating within the guide lines of these agencies, another stupid law suit by pea brained people looking to get something for nothing. I ask you you dummies do you eat ham , bacon, pork roast, pork ribs? Thats right you do, just dont rais them around you right dummy. Oh yeah just so you know iv lived in the country and around hog farms its called living in the country thats part of country smells. these people who sued need to go hide their heads in pig crap the the lawers need to think where the pork they eat comes from as they choke on that piece of bacon. its called carma and lawers need to think hard about carma.

We have had pork before corporate farming and we would still have pork without it. This is corporate greed at its worst and youre not smart enough to see it. It doesn't take a brain surgeon to realize that these corporations do not care anything about the people they locate these farms next to. If it is so great why doesn't the ceo of the company live on the premises?? Again corporate greed at its worst!!!The real dummy is you!!!!!!

Coorporate greed you say. Id say its greed by the idiots that sued, like i said before they knew a large hog operation was going in Booooo Hooooo to these idiots that sued. Like i said before also they cant put a operation of this magnatude in without county, state and federal regulations so y didnt these stupid people attend the meetings prior to them getting permits. And like i said before by the time the attorney is done with this they more than likly wont get anymore than they did in the last stupid suit they filed. You want your pork just as long as its not raised in your nose range. Just went outside and DAMM THEM HOGS SMELL GOOOOOD!!!!!!! Get a life Dummy that goes for the people who sued also

You have no point. Farming provides thousands of jobs and we can do without coporate farming it is a fact. Attorneys are the winners in this case and all cases that involve lawyers. The neighbors aren't stupid Premium standard was stupid for locating here to begin with.

Why should the neighbors move when most lived in the area for years before the hog barns went up?? Makes no sense for them to move it is just as easy for the hog barns to move> Sorry you are so narrow minded.

No not narrow minded just tired of stupid lawsuits when all the dumb a s s neighbors had to do is go to the Zoneing meetings before they put the hog farm in but your pea brain cant comprehind that. You know Will its tornado season and as dumb as you and the neighbors are up there dont stand outside to look at the tornados you might get hit by a flying hog. I can see the headlines now Lawsuit winners of smelly hoggs get smashed by flying hoggs. good luck to you dummies up there.
