Tonight, March 10th, the Trade Lake Board passed the Large Livestock Operations Ordinance. Give yourselves a pat on the back. There was a full house! Standing room only.

The Ordinance should be published tomorrow at Read it and be impressed. Share it far and wide.

Thanks to everybody who came and everybody who has supported this moment for 2 years. Keep in mind that this does not affect Siting. That is a County Zoning issue and there’s still a lot of work to be done there. What we have achieved through the Ordinance is a high level of local control over any cafo that is sited in Trade Lake.

We are looking forward to a big summer of activities so stay tuned.
