Good call - FINALLY - by ADEQ. Screw Hutchinson for supporting C&H’s ‘rights’ with zero regard for impact to the Buffalo or the health and safety of Arkansans. Despicable.

Good. It'll be appealed surely. Arkansas needs to refuse all industrial hog farms forever. Our state is pristine and needs to stay that way. We need to encourage "clean" industries.

The State & the ADEQ had different leaders when the farm was permitted.
