It was done right the first time; the small family farm.

Each farmer had a quarter with 10 to 15 milk cows.

The food grown was the best food ever grown by any U.S. farmer and mostly organic.

The same can be said about China. The food in China is all fresh and organic. Even the fruit, citrus, grown anywhere south of the 35 degree parallel, is fresh.

When a person buys meat, it's fresh, a day old, and not frozen.

Watch the videos on : interviews with Thief River residents who had to evacuate their homes due to the toxic gases emanating from Rick Milner's Excel Dairy. These are people who lived in the area before MN State Department of Health allowed the dairy to move into their neighborhood.
In Wisconsin they convert that "dairy air" into electricity by the use of a biodigester and a generator. They get enough electricity to power many homes. The dry waste left over is wonderful, nonsmelly fertilizer. We have at least 1/2 dozen of these operating here.

If you live near a feedlot did you expect it to smell like roses?
Um....if you have followed this story at all, the NEIGHBORS were there BEFORE the CAFO. This happens all of the time and yes they live on a farm, but this my friend is NOT farming. It is not natural to have Millions of gallons of Cow crap in a lagoon. it is NORMALLY all throughout a field. DUH!

theres town and county meeting about letting them in you should of been there to say something about it at that time.
Read the county commissioner notes from when this operation was coming in and you will see they were all there and all fighting against it. You do not have rights after the county decides it's zoning ordinences. Nothing can stop it not even property owners that will be affected.
