Cadiz OKs moratorium ordinance
CADIZ TOWNSHIP - In a move matching those in other local townships, the town of Cadiz approved an ordinance that allows for a delay in the addition of a large-dairy facility within the area. Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations have been a focal point of attention since Todd Tuls, owner of Rock Prairie Dairy in Janesville and other large farms in a number of states throughout the country, proposed a 5,000-animal-unit dairy farm within the town of Sylvester along County FF and Decatur-Sylvester Road. The state defines a CAFO as a dairy operation with more than 1,000 animal units on the property.
