Vreba Hoff Dairy Development is asking Ogden Township in Lenawee County to support a grant request they are preparing requesting economic development assistance from the state to support the building of a new 5,000 head dairy there -- does this make sense to anyone outside of Vreba Hoff?
Debate continues over grant for dairy
The grant proposal is for road work for a
controversial 5,000-cow dairy development at Mulberry and Treat.
Ogden Township representatives said they believe it is unfair for tax dollars to aid in the dairy development when existing farms are not eligible to receive the same help with road improvements. Local farm owner Mike Fike said he is concerned that other local roads near the dairy will be damaged by traffic the facility will generate.
