For the past several years, Ripon-area residents have heard about how Rosendale Dairy could become “the largest dairy in the state of Wisconsin.”

As of last week Friday, it became a virtual certainty.

The DNR approved a request by Rosendale Dairy to modify its wastewater permit, allowing dairy owners to expand its herd to 8,000 cows and 300 steer.

“For the regulations existing ... this permit is reflective of the extent of our authority,” said Liz Spaeth-Werner, wastewater specialist for the DNR.

The ruling also allows Rosendale Dairy to spread manure on about 12,000 acres — up from about 4,000 used to this point.

“We are very confident and happy we have gone through the process,” said Jim Ostrom, one of three partners in Rosendale Dairy (along with John Vosters and Todd Willer). “We are confident it protects the environment. It is the most regulated farm in state history. That said, we work very hard daily to protect the environment and the community.”

Ostrom described the DNR scrutiny on the farm as “extraordinary.”

Read the full story in the Jan. 28, 2010 edition of the Ripon Commonwealth Press.
