MONROE - Engineers for the concentrated animal feeding operation Pinnacle Dairy informed Green County conservation officials they hope to have the milking parlor operational by May 1, but a permit condition and new concerns by conservationists continue to nag the development. Members of the county Land and Water Conservation Committee heard an update from Green County Conservationist Todd Jenson during a monthly meeting Thursday. A pre-planned option to deal with higher than allowed water elevations has been chosen by Pinnacle, Jenson said.
