Re: “Goat Fight! (Updated with pic)

Set the record straight: The Nielsens bought the house in 1920 from Pete Sacchi, passed it to their children Anna and Anders Nielsen in 1953 and in turn passed to their son Don Nielsen in 1979. No such document exists or was ever signed. The intent of the ag zoning is not for intensive farming; Masons have run 20-25 cows on the site for over 30 years. That's one cow per acre; good husbandry.

Re: “Goat Fight! (Updated with pic)

As writer Melissa notes, a li’l more poo, probably doesn't bother her, but it may bother retirees, folks with modest incomes, and those with health problems. They bought property during the last eight years that this project was in the thinking stages, sunk their life savings into properties they thought would hold value - --with no disclosure. Corporate giants like Emmi can go anywhere they like: Why not move the plan further out to a location which does not have the environmental and human concerns that Bloomfield/Arcatans are voicing -- why strike a blow at our midsection when there is plenty of grazing land located away from town? We love CG, but we can't abide by the location!

This breezy account of the neighborhood's plight does not address the impact on adjacent homeowners' dismay. Who among you would want a 3-acre mass of smelly buildings where cows used the graze? Imagine how attractive this will be to visitors -- not at all like the Marsh and Bird Sanctuary. Who wants their kids to play anywhere near stockpiled manure which emanates from hundreds of animals within a small area? What happens to your property value? Imagine.
