TOWN OF SARATOGA, WOOD COUNTY (WSAU) -  Several Wood County residents opposed to a planned 53 hundred cow dairy in the Town of Saratoga are meeting Sunday. The people trying to stop the Wysocki Family Farm project are meeting at the Town Hall Sunday at 3:00 p.m.

The mega dairy has been planned for over a year, and is going through the state’s permitting process now. If built, the operation would include about 4,000 cows, around 1,300 calves and heifers, and would also be growing feed crops on 6,400 acres.

Several people have expressed concern about the processing of animal waste and the number of high capacity water wells required to run such an operation.
