Meadow Star Dairy again given preliminary OK for permit


WILLMAR -- For the second time in two years developers of a proposed 9,590-head dairy operation west of Willmar received preliminary approval for a conditional use permit for a feedlot that, once it's operational, is expected to employ 30 to 40 people.

On a unanimous vote Monday night, the Kandiyohi County Planning Commission approved the permit for Meadow Star Dairy of rural Pennock. The Kandiyohi County Board of Commissioners will take final action Oct. 19.
