Judge: Wisconsin Must Levy Environmental Protections on Dairy Farm

 |  By: Associated Press

A Dane County judge has ruled the Department of Natural Resources can't retract a previous decision and must continue imposing environmental protections on a large dairy farm expansion.

Dane County Circuit Judge John W. Markson ruled last week that Wisconsin can set limits on large dairy feedlots to protect water sources from pollution, overturning a decision of department secretary Cathy Stepp.

The court decision is the latest development in a dispute over Kinnard Farms' plans to expand its dairy operations by thousands of cows in Kewaunee County.
