(BROWNSTOWN) - A Freetown man and his son have cleared another hurdle in their efforts to build an 8,000-head confined animal feeding operation.

In a 4-0 vote, with one member absent, the Jackson County Board of Zoning Appeals approved the special exception for the early-wean-to-finish hog operation proposed by James Lucas and his son, Matthew.

The two 4,000-head barns would be set on 159.37 acres at 1502 W. County Road 300N in Brownstown Township. This is a zoned agricultural flood plain.
