The Crawford County Land Conservation Committee has finalized the Confined Animal Feeding Operation (CAFO) Report and will present the report to the county board at the board’s regular meeting on Oct. 20.

The CAFO Study Group reviewed the report at the Soil and Water Concerns Committee meeting on Tuesday morning, Oct. 13. The findings and a list of some options for the county board to consider will be presented at the meeting on Oct. 20.

The county board will not be taking any action or making any decisions regarding the CAFO Report during its meeting next week.

If anyone in Crawford County should apply for a CAFO permit, the Land Conservation Committee would decide whether or not to approve of any such livestock facility permit application.

The Land Conservation Committee has not received any CAFO permit application.

During its September meeting, the Land Conservation Committee voted down a proposal to recommend a one-year extension of the CAFO  moratorium to the Crawford County Board.

On Dec. 17, 2019, the Crawford County Board voted 10-7 to enact a one-year moratorium on CAFOs. The moratorium went into effect on Dec. 31, 2019.

The Land Conservation Committee cannot act on a livestock facility permit application until the moratorium expires.
