hog farm

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — The state has issued a permit for a large hog-breeding farm in central Missouri that had been strongly opposed by neighbors.

 

The permit from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources will allow Callaway Farrowing to build a farm raising 10,000 hogs on 20 acres in western Callaway County near Kingdom City.

 

Neighbors held meetings in opposition of the farm and submitted a petition with 1,400 signatures asking the state to reject it.

Opponents of a proposed hog breeding operation in central Missouri are circulating petitions against the plan.
