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

This "farm " should be closed down now, never should have been permitted.

Wrong location for a hog farm.

A hog farm is a confinement farm where the animals consume primarily grain ( corn)

No corn grown for miles around.
Also, the best utilization of hog manure is on fields that can utilize high rates of hog manure...........CORN fields.

Keep hog farms near tillable fields.

It's just common sense !

Would LOVE to see this place get shut down. Maybe Masterson can call ICE and have them repeatedly raid the place. If this place isn’t full of undocumented immigrants, I’ll eat my hat.

If the project involves farmers or big agriculture, the Farm Bureau will be for it regardless of the environmental impacts. According to the Farm Bureau's propaganda, all regulations are bad and violate property owners' rights. However, nobody owns the state's rivers and streams, and the ADEQ is doing its job and looking out for the public interest.
