Don’t Forget the Laramie County CAFO!

The announcement earlier this week of three new off-range corrals and the expansion of a fourth complements the announcement earlier this year of the closure of three HMAs and downsizing of a fourth.

These short-term holding facilities are sometimes referred to as ‘concentrated animal feeding operations’ or ‘high-density feeding operations.’

Another such facility may be in the works, thanks to a rule change in Laramie County, WY that will streamline the approval of a CAFO near Burns.  Residents near the proposed feedlot opposed the change, along with the county planning commission.

The facility would have a capacity of 5,000 wild horses.
