Lincoln County South Dakota Zoning Board Approves Dairy Permit

The Lincoln County South Dakota Planning and Zoning Board approved a permit for a 4250 head dairy. Planning and Zoning Administrator Paul Aslesen says Dakota Plains Dairy owned by Tim Den Dulk met all the Confined Animal Feedlot regulations under the County’s Zoning ordinance as well as other criteria used to approve permits.

Aslesen says the dairy operators did a good job in meeting neighbor’s concerns including drainage and road usage. He says they were very well prepared prior to appearing before the Planning and Zoning commission.

Dakota Plains Dairy will employ 30 people with salaries ranging from$ 35,000 to $ 100,000. The permit approval is final unless it’s appealed to the County Board of Commissioners.
