Sounds like a good plan to me. After all, the only potential problems are minimal like, karst features, numerous sink holes, numerous springs, numerous tributaries to trout streams and at least two maybe three designated trout streams themselves that the pig crap will end up in ? I forgot none of other residents close by should fear that their wells will end up getting polluted either! I'm surprised the MPCA hasn't approved the plan already, its sure to be a money maker, and drive the economy to new heights! :(

If this project is given the ok to proceed by the MPCA then IMO there is no justification for an environmental review process?

I understand the threat but... Every hog operation I know at least injects the manure, that's a lot more than what MOST dairy farmers can say. Hog farms are no rarity in my area. Sure they stink but so do the Obamas.

You're entitled to your opinion, but the last part of your comment was uncalled for and inappropriate.

Yup and thats what almost every media outlet is doing to the Trumps. The double standard is appalling.

Speaking of hog operations, my dad always told me "never wrestle with a pig because you both get dirty and the pig likes it."
