"Odor Problem Pits Hog Farm Operator Against State, Divides Towns"
"On a snowy night in February, about 1,500 people packed a school gymnasium in northern Missouri to sound off about the owner of factory hog farms.
Their message was clear:
Leave Premium Standard Farms alone.
That's a very different message from the one a jury delivered Thursday when it awarded $11 million to some farmers in the same area who complained of odors from a Premium Standard hog operation.
In northern Missouri, you are for Premium Standard or against it."Source: Kansas City Star, 03/08/2010
