Hog farm expansion near Bath, South Dakota denied


ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) – The Brown County Planning Commission has rejected the proposed expansion of a hog operation in the Bath area.

The commission unanimously denied two necessary permits this week. They had earlier tabled action on the request after some neighbors of the operation voiced concerns.

County Commission Chairwoman Rachel Kippley says the Wolff Family Genetics hog operation failed to get the approval of enough neighbors for the expansion to be allowed.

The hog farm can appeal to the full County Commission.
