Meadow Star Dairy gets final OK for 9,590-head operation


WILLMAR -- With little discussion and only praise for the developers, the Kandiyohi County Commissioners unanimously approved a conditional use permit Tuesday for a 9,590-head dairy operation near Pennock.

Preliminary groundwork for Meadow Star Dairy LLP is expected to begin this fall, according to Nate Hultgren, one of the developers of the St. John's Township farm that will include 4,754 milking cows, 340 heifers and 3,590 calves.
