Wykson Growers LLC (Saint Peter) - Feedlot Permit
We invite you to comment on the draft permit for the Wykson Growers LLC animal feedlot located in Nicollet County.
The facility will house 325,000 head of poultry in total confinement barns. Solid manure generated by the animals will be stockpiled at the facility. Manure generated at the facility will be applied to surrounding cropland at agronomic rates. The final animal unit (AU) capacity of the facility will remain unchanged at 975 AU.
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.
The 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.
