Manure runoff affecting Vernon County creek

By Central Office October 5, 2017

Contact(s): Jim Dick, DNR communications director, 608-267-2773

MADISON - Manure runoff from a dairy farm in Vernon County is affecting water quality in a creek in west central Wisconsin.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources responded Wednesday to a report about a spill that occurred at the Wild Rose Dairy north of the village of La Farge. The amount of runoff entering the stream is unknown and the impacts downriver are still being investigated at this time. The dairy is working with DNR staff to address the issue and the source from the spill has been controlled. Agriculture specialists with the DNR will continue to monitor water quality in the creek.

The facility is a permitted concentrated animal feeding operation (CAFO).
