Hog Farm Debate In La Salle County

Posted by wlpo on June 13, 2011

A brand new hog farm and expansion of an existing one are up for discussion tonight at a La Salle County Board meeting.

John Hagenbuch of Utica wants to build a new 1,920 unit hog farm southeast of Triumph and expand an existing hog farm in Waltham Township to 1,920 units.  He’d like to start building this summer.  Hagenbuch will address the county board tonight in Ottawa about his plans.  After his presentation, La Salle County Farm Bureau President Monte Whipple will give his group’s opinion on the hog farms.

The county board tonight could sent a letter to the department of agriculture requesting a public hearing about Hagenbuch’s hog farm plans.
