TOWN OF SYLVESTER - Licenses for new or expanding farms of 500 cows or more are now required in the Town of Sylvester after recommendations to restrict manure transport and spreading locations from the town science committee were adopted by the board Monday night. The science committee, made up of local scientists with backgrounds in ecology, hydrogeology, environmental biology and other areas, was established by the town board after a moratorium was passed on large-scale livestock facilities in September.
