Livestock Siting: Technical Expert Committee

​​​​​​​The livestock siting law requires that the Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection convene a group of experts every four years to provide technical advice on the standards used in ATCP 51. This is the administrative rule that sets the standards that local governments must follow if they choose to regulate livestock siting.

The technical expert committee reviewed the standards from 2014 to 2015, and 2018 to 2019 issuing its recommendations to the Secretary of the department.  Beginning in December 2022​, the department has convened the technical committee for another four-year review.
