Siting CAFOs in Wisconsin: Public Perception of Impacts

Written by David S. Liebl, this fact sheet discusses a series of workshops held by the University of Wisconsin Cooperative Extension program in which participants were asked to express their perceptions of the economic, environmental and societal factors associated with the siting of Confined Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs). The participants comments are summarized to help local officials assess the potential impacts of CAFOs on their communities and to assist with responding to proposals to site them.
