Deerview Dairy LLLP

We invite you to comment on the draft permit for the Deerview Dairy LLLP animal feedlot located in Kandiyohi County.

The facility will house 1,310 head of dairy in total confinement barns. Liquid manure generated by the animals will be stored within earthen and concrete lined storage structures. Solid manure generated by the animals will be stockpiled with land application fields. Process wastewater and manure contaminated runoff from the facility will be stored within lined structures. Manure generated at the facility will be applied to surrounding cropland at agronomic rates.

This permitting action includes proposed construction of animal holding areas, a liquid manure storage area and a feed storage area at the facility. The 176 x 85-foot barn is an existing barn that is being modified with the proposal to modify it by adding an addition of 184 x 85 feet to the northwest corner. The other proposed modification is to add 200 x 66 feet to the existing 540 x 112-foot barn in the southwest corner. This facility will be expanding the current capacity of the barn by 739 animal units (AUs), for a final total of 1,678 AUs. The preliminary determination to issue this Feedlots permit is tentative.

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.
