Commissioners give initial approval to confined feeding moratorium


Follow The Republic:


Bartholomew County Commissioners today gave initial approval to a moratorium on new larger confined animal feeding operations, as well as the expansion of current large-scale operations.

The commissioners agreed to limit the moratorium to no longer than a year. The proposal had called for an 18-month moratorium.

The moratorium would apply to animal feeding operations with more than 300 cattle, 600 swine, 600 sheep, and 30,000 fowl.

Commissioners chairman Carl Lienhoop scheduled a final vote on the moratorium for 10 a.m. on Sept. 8.
