Kinnard Farms in Kewaunee County says in its complaint that the business will be harmed if it isn’t allowed to expand its herd and will be burdened by the cost of a groundwater monitoring system.

The Kinnard operation includes 16 industrial farms with about 8,000 cows.

It has struggled with agricultural pollution for years as contaminants began showing up in private wells.

The delay in details being issued on the proposed dairy reduction scheme is “playing with the futures” of farm families, according to the Irish Creamery Milk Suppliers’ Association (ICMSA).
