Large hog confinement

DES MOINES – Exactly the same as the last two years, 89 of Iowa’s 99 counties plan to use the master matrix to evaluate construction permit applications and proposed sites for animal confinements this year.

From Feb. 1 to Jan. 31 of 2021, producers who need a construction permit in these counties must meet additional requirements.

The ten counties that did not pass a construction evaluation resolution were: Davis, Des Moines, Keokuk, Lee, Mahaska, Osceola, Plymouth, Wapello, Warren and Washington.
