Allen County is about to become home to another Confined Animal Feeding Operation (CAFO). The permit request was filed by Mark S. Rekeweg on May 14, 2007, with IDEM issuance on July 6, 2007 – about a seven-week turnaround time. The newly approved CAFO will
house cram 1,100 nursery pigs and 7,000 finishers into whatever size building is being proposed – the permit doesn’t provide those particulars.
Just what Allen County needs – more CAFOs bumping into more subdivisions.
