E-M:/ Vreba-Hoff Dairy LLC - Mich. fines large dairy $141,500

Vreba-Hoff also is ordered to reduce its herd of cows

The Michigan Attorney General's Office on Wednesday fined the company $141,500 and ordered it to thin out its 6,050-cow herd by 350 animals because of several new violations at its two concentrated animal feeding operations, or CAFOs, both south of Hudson.
