Big dairy plans upset many in Lafayette Co.

DARLINGTON - A new large-scale farm may be built in Lafayette County by farmers already invested in the area, but opponents of the plan are concerned the impact the operation could have on the environment. On Monday, 52 people crowded into the downstairs community room of Town Bank in Darlington to learn more about a proposed dairy farm in the Township of Seymour that would host 4,150 cows and employ 28 workers. The farm, called Oak Ridge Dairy Farm, is proposed by farmers Jim DiGangi and Katie Martin, a married couple who have owned and operated Darlington Ridge Dairy since 2008 in the Town of Seymour.
