We invite you to comment on the draft permit for the Willmar Poultry Farms Inc (Tersteeg) animal feedlot located in Renville County.
The facility will house 59,000 head of poultry in total confinement barns. Manure generated at the facility will be applied to surrounding cropland at agronomic rates. The final animal unit capacity at the facility will be decreased from 1,190 to 672 as a result of eliminating one barn.
This permit requires the facility to be designed, operated, and maintained to prevent discharge to waters, except in an extreme storm event. Operators are required to land apply manure at agronomic rates, observe water setbacks, and maintain records of land application activities, including location, timing, and rate of application. Please refer to the draft permit for additional requirements.
MPCA’s feedlot permit strives to protect our lakes, rivers, streams, wetlands, and groundwater by preventing manure from polluting water. The permit applies to most aspects of livestock management including the location, design, construction, operation, and management of feedlots and manure handling facilities. Minnesota has approximately 18,000 registered livestock operations.
All fields are optional unless otherwise indicated.
