Locals Protest Against Large Hog Farm Proposal

It’s been a heated issue for months, a proposed hog farm just miles from Lake Superior is up for debate once more.

This Wednesday, July 29, Farms not Factories is holding what they are calling a “Stink In” at the bandshell in Ashland.

They plan to have pail of hog manure on hand for people to take a whiff of what the proposed pig barns will smell like.

Organizers say the Mayors of Ashland and Washburn will also be on hand to talk about the effects on the area air and water supply.
