Wisconsin Judge Allows Disputed Dairy Farm Expansion To Move Forward

Administrative Judge Jeffrey Boldt will allow Kinnard Farms in northeast Wisconsin to expand dairy operations, provided the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources requires the installation of monitoring wells to detect groundwater pollution.
