For the first year following the promulgation of the livestock siting standards in the Administrative Code, DATCP developed monthly reports to track siting applications and decisions. DATCP wrote annual reports on implementation of the state siting standards for the first four years of the program.
Livestock Facility Siting Implementation Report, May 2010 – June 2011
The Fifth Annual Report summarizes local and state implementation during the past year.
Livestock Facility Siting Four Year Evaluation Report, May 2006 – April 2010
The Fourth Annual Report summarizes implementation of the rule over the past four year. The report is intended to meet the legal requirements for review and to identify key implementation issues warranting further evaluation. The report includes a summary of the public comments submitted to the department during Feb. and March 2010. DATCP hosted four listening sessions in Dodgeville, Eau Claire, Oshkosh and Wausau to gather comments on what farmers, rural landowners, government officials and others think about the state's rule related to the expansion or establishment of larger livestock operations. About 400 persons attended and over 860 comments were provided.
