MONROE - Silence fell over the 80-person crowd at the Green County Courthouse Wednesday as the county Land and Water Conservation Committee voted 6-0 in favor of Pinnacle Dairy, a large-scale facility set to be built on 127 acres along County FF and Decatur-Sylvester Road. But as residents approached the microphone for public comment denouncing the concentrated animal feeding operation as an unnecessary potential pollutant of the county's groundwater with its planned 5,800 cows, applause echoed within the courtroom. Green County sheriff deputies remained stoic in three separate corners of the room.
