Public Hearing Scheduled for Proposed Buffalo Hog Farm

North Dakota’s Health Department has scheduled a public hearing on a proposed 9,000 hog operation near Buffalo.

It will be held March 17 at the Buffalo Senior Citizens building.

The comment period is being extended to the 19th of March.

Minnesota-based Pipestone Holdings LLC is planning the $15 million Rolling Green Family Farms hog facility.

It needs a permit from the Health Department.

Some of the town’s 200 residents worry about problems such as odor.
