Conflict over Proposed Hog Grow-out Operation


A zoning board in Muncie IN has overturned a building permit issued by a County Commission.  The proposed hog farm in a rural area would have housed 10,000 weaners during grow-out.


The Metropolitan Board of Zoning Appeals classified the farm in Delaware County as an “industrial facility” which is totally illogical. Hogs are livestock and are not “manufactured”


The owner of the proposed operation will pursue legal options to overturn the adverse verdict of the Zoning Appeals Board.
