A requested permit to open a confined feeding operation, or CFO, has some residents in Montgomery County concerned.
The permit was submitted by Bowlder Ridge LLC. Documents from the Indiana Department of Environmental Management say the request, submitted May 21, is for a farm of 8,800 hogs near the small town of Linden.
Monty Eldridge, a county resident who lives near the proposed site, says he received a notice from IDEM about the requested permit. He says he’s gone door to door to speak with other residents.
