Factory Farm Fight

A community in Harrison County, Ind., fights the expansion of a factory farm.

Approximately 20 concerned residents of Harrison County in southern Indiana are fighting the expansion of a 4,000-hog factory farm nearby. The Citizens of Harrison County for Sustainable Farming cites pollution, as well as reduced property values, as reasons to halt the expansion of Larry and Sandra Day’s farm from 4,000 hogs to 8,000. Dan Jacobs, one of the opponents, tells the Courier-Journal, “We don’t think it’s right to have to put up with this industrialized factory farming.” Owner Sandra Day, however, says that the expansion is completely legal and abides by state rules and regulations.
