Area Farm Cited for Feedlot Violations

D-h-s Farms in northern Wadena county has been fined $30 thousand by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency for alleged feedlot violations. In addition to paying the civil penalty, D-h-s Farms is completing a number of corrective actions.

According to inspection reports, the feedlot exceeded its allowable limit of cattle, failed to obtain required permits and notify local zoning authorities of its expansion, allowed manure and manure-contaminated runoff to discharge into waters of the state, failed to notify the M-P-C-A of the discharges, and failed to keep records of manure transfers for land application.
