Posted on 01 June 2011 by KWBG

BOONE, Iowa—It was about 4 years ago, residents of rural Boone County, northeast of Boone protested the location of a hog confinment operation. The families were back at the Boone County Courthouse to gain Supervisors support in oppostion to another proposed hog confinment to be located near 160th and U Avenue, northeast of Boone. More than 80 residences are located in the area. The owner of Capstone Finishers is Dr. William Whitley from Alabama. Because of the size, the county has no say in the location, everything is handled by the Iowa DNR.
