TOWN OF SYLVESTER - In its meeting Wednesday night, the Sylvester town board approved a submitted ordinance for licensing livestock facilities, in addition to an ordinance prohibiting the aerial application of fertilizer, but not before experiencing consternation during the Large-Scale Livestock Study Committee meeting. The committee was formed after a large-scale dairy farm called Pinnacle applied to acquire land for a full-scale operation along Decatur-Sylvester and County FF. The proposal includes 5,800 cattle over 130 total acres of farmland in the area.
