Wisconsin citizens are fighting the opening of a 5,000-cow factory farm near Coloma, Wisc. Notices for the proposed farm were posted in Adams County; citizens of Coloma, a mere three miles away, were not informed of the plans because Coloma resides in the adjacent county of Waushara. Residents and business owners have started a grassroots campaign against the concentrated animal feeding operation (CAFO). Bruce Van Schaak, a resident, tells wisbusiness.com, “I own a beautiful home in Coloma and I also have land less than 1,000 feet of the proposed ‘dairy farm’ where I intend to build my retirement home in five years.” He continues, “Why would I continue to have this dream if the water tables and air quality will degrade with this CAFO?”
