Oregon dairy expansion
proposals stir controversy

By MATEUSZ
PERKOWSKI
Capital Bureau
6AL(0 ² ([pansion
plans at several 2reJon dair
ies have caused a bacNlash
amonJ veJans and animal
riJhts activists, but farm
reJulators lacN the authority
to consider many of their ob
Mections.
LiNeZise, the 2reJon
Department of AJricul
ture can¶t do much about
dairy industry concerns
that publicly disclosed reJ
ulatory filinJs Zill e[pose
farms to trespassinJ and
vandalism.
As mandated by the fed
eral &lean Water Act, the
aJency issued a public no
tice in -une that five dairies
are seeNinJ to chanJe their
animal Zaste manaJement
plans.
Wym 0attheZs, manaJer
of the Department of AJri
culture¶s &onfined Animal
)eedinJ 2peration proJram,
said such notices are fair
ly routine, but this one Zas
someZhat unusual because
four of the five dairies Zant
to e[pand their herds.
After an article in 6alem¶s
6tatesman -ournal described
these plans, the aJency re
ceived enouJh reTuests for a
public hearinJ that one Zas
scheduled Wednesday .
Previously, such hearinJ
reTuests Zere rare, 0at
theZs said. ³I thinN the in
terest is neZ.´
6everal of the people re
TuestinJ a hearinJ identi
fied themselves as veJan, he

DurinJ a -uly meetinJ of
an advisory Jroup for the
feedinJ proJram, some live
stocN industry representa
tives e[pressed Zorries that
information contained in the
Zaste manaJement plans,
such as the farm¶s location
and layout, Zill e[pose dair
ies to retaliation from activ
ists.
Dairy and aJriculture
representatives later said
a 6tatesman -ournal arti
cle mischaracterized their
comments as tryinJ to
hide information from the
public.
Tami .err, e[ecutive di
rector of the 2reJon Dairy
)armers Association, said
they Zere simply Zorried
about private information
beinJ misused and not about
the contents of the Zaste
manaJement plans becom
inJ public.
“We Zere asNinJ Tues
tions and e[pressinJ concern
for our producers,” .err
said. “We¶re not tryinJ to
hide anythinJ. I¶m a biJ fan
of transparency.”
While the Department
of AJriculture can redact
confidential business infor
mation ² such as financial
data or e[perimental Zater
treatment systems Zith pat
ents pendinJ ² the bulN of
these plans must be pub
licly disclosed under the
&lean Water Act, 0attheZs
said.
“We¶re reTuired to by
laZ,” he said.

comments that relate direct
ly to Zhether the Zaste man
aJement chanJes conform
Zith the &lean Water Act,
not overall opposition to an
imal aJriculture or confined
feedinJ operations as beinJ
abusive, he said.
³The permit doesn¶t reJ
ulate animal cruelty,´ 0at
theZs said.
The state also can¶t
consider comments that
endorse particular man
aJement systems, such as
orJanic or pastureraised, he
said.
0any of the comments
made durinJ the hearinJ
Wednesday appeared to fall
outside of the state¶s pur
vieZ, as they opposed feed
inJ proJram e[pansion Jen
erally Zithout identifyinJ
specific problems Zith the
proposed Zaste manaJement
plans.
6ome commenters men
tioned antibiotics, Zhich the
aJency does not reJulate as
a pollutant.
“They end up in the meat,
in the manure and in the Za
terZays,´ said 1iNo 0oro
]ov, a colleJe student.
2thers obMected to the
amount of Zater used to pro
duce milN, Zhich also isn¶t
reJulated under the &lean
Water Act.
1ic 6hipley, another col
leJe student, claimed dairy
Zater use is e[cessive.
“Is milN really Zorth it"´
he said.
The issue of animal Zel
fare Zas also brouJht up.
“In an ideal Zorld, Ze
Zouldn¶t treat animals the
Zay Ze do and have massive
meJafarms,´ said Laurel
+ines. “0y opposition is to
the larJe farms, the farms
that aren¶t orJanic.´
*avin &urtis e[pressed
dismay Zith the practice
of cullinJ younJ calves for
“bob veal.”
“These tZo to threeday
old babies are torn from their
mothers and then slauJh
tered,” he said.
