Letter to the editor: A sad day for Green County
Placeholder Image
From Harry Pulliam New Glarus Thursday, April 6 was a sad day for Green County. That morning the Green County Board Land and Water Conservation Committee (Oscar Olson, Russ Torkelson, Kristi Leonard, Kenneth Hodgson and Jeff Williams) voted unanimously to allow Nebraska-based Todd Tuls to build a 5,800-cow industrial dairy operation in the Town of Sylvester. Once established, the operation will annually produce over 68 million gallons of liquid manure (enough to fill 103 Olympic-sized swimming pools) and 16,500 tons of solid waste.
