The CAFO debate continues. How are towns across the state sticking together to fight the concentrated animal feeding operations? Today sub host and WORT news director Molly Stentz talks with members of the Ashland City Council and Mary Dougherty, a spokesperson and founder of Farms Not Factories.
In the studio Molly was joined by Ashland City Council member Carl Doersch and Frank Koehn. Over the hour we heard from Dougherty, city council member Richard Ketring, Jim Zorn, and Bad River Environmental Specialist Lissa Radke.
The “Stink In on the State Street Steps” event will take place this Saturday, November 7th at 1 PM at the capitol. Two dozen state-based and nationally recognized organizations will address Wisconsin’s
CAFO crisis and its damaging impact on public health,
water and air quality, natural resources, businesses, property values and rural community life.
