Hog Farm Proposed In Marshall County

Posted by wlpo on March 15, 2014

What are your thoughts on hog farms?  The Marshall County Board could soon vote on whether or not to allow a hog farm northwest of Wenona.

Marshall County Engineer Patrick Sloan told the county board this week that a group called Sandy Creek Lane, LLC wants to run a hog farm that would have over five thousand breeding sows.  He says it would create up to 20 jobs and $17 million in development.

VMC Management Corporation out of Williamsburg, Iowa would run the hog farm.  They already run a dozen hog farms.

Several permits are needed and hearings will be held before the hog farm becomes reality.
