New Lafayette County livestock ordinance would require license
Placeholder Image
DARLINGTON - The Lafayette County Land Conservation Committee agreed Monday on a livestock facilities ordinance requiring a license for new or expanding sites. Any farm, whether beef or dairy, swine, poultry, sheep or goats, must apply for a livestock license if the expansion or new facility will host 750 or more animal units, which is a unit of measurement based on pounds per animal. Committee Chairman Leon Wolfe said the ordinance is a method to hold back large expansions that could negatively impact the county.
