Some in community unhappy about 4,500-head dairy planned near Neptune

MVP Dairy is a partnership of McCarty Dairy of Colby, Kansas, and VanTilburg Farms of Celina. Neighbors near the site of the proposed facility have expressed concerns about the odor, increased traffic, manure runoff, exhausted wells, groundwater contamination and decreased property values. [More]
