Supervisors provide recommendation for hog confinement
Unlike the situation in neighboring Story County, there was no outcry during Tuesday’s public hearing as the Jasper County Board of Supervisors gave its recommendation for a hog confinement expansion south of Sully.
Judson Vos’s current confinement holds 2,400 head. Once the expansion is operational, it will be capable of holding 4,800 market hogs.
“We bought our farm in ’87, moved there in ’89 and in 2004, we put up two 1,200 head hog confinement buildings,” Vos said. “Those have worked out real well for us. Our son is now taking care of the pigs. (There is a) lot of benefit to investing in the buildings and what they produce.”
