Wisconsin DNR allows major dairy expansion
Rosendale Dairy in Fond du Lac County wants to double in size, from 4,000 cows to 8,000 cows, which would make it the largest dairy operation in the state.
Neighbors and environmentalists have expressed fear that manure will harm groundwater supplies.
The DNR says language in the farm's water-protection permit is stronger than state law requires.
Nobody has worked harder at doing the right thing in producing America's Food supply than the individuals with Rosendale Dairy congratulations.....Trent

I spent this past weekend with the Utah Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers in Bryce Canyon UT. The three feet of snow that arrived just before the start of the meeting, the closed roads did not deter this group of committed farmers and ranchers from showing up 200 people in fact and it was an awesome meeting. This photo is the track hoe and how the parking lot of Ruby's Inn was cleared for our arrival. More about the meeting later.
