Hall County supervisors are backing efforts to combat what the county attorney says are violations by a Dannebrog, Neb. cattle feeder who has too many animals at his location.
The Grand Island Independent reports that the board voted 7-0 on Tuesday to back Jack Zitterkopf as he demands that Ken Kohlhof reduce his herd at C & I Cattle Co. and comply with country regulations. Otherwise, Zitterkopf says, Kohlhof could be fined $500 a day and his business could be closed.
Zitterkopf says that under county regulations, Kohlhof has too many cattle too close to neighbors, who have complained about the smell and the growing size of the feedlot.
Kohlhof told the newspaper that he is working toward compliance.
