The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency has prepared an Environmental Assessment Worksheet for a proposed expansion at Sparboe Farms east of Litchfield. The Environmental Assessment Worksheet, which describes potential impacts on land use, water quality and air quality, is open for public review and comment through October 2.
Sparboe Farms proposes to expand its egg-production facility, replacing several barns with larger ones for layer hens. This will increase the total number of hens at Sparboe Farms to more than one million eight hundred thousand hens.
The Environmental Assessment Worksheet, contact information, and related material are available on the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency website.
