Coming from living on a dairy my whole life, and most of it in the Jerome County, I find this to be INSANE! You live in the country in the Magic Valley (which I find quite interesting that your pointing them out in that valley and not the Treasure Valley as well) and should be aware of the fact that dairies are in obvious existence over there... giving them the right to build where ever they please. If you really have that many concerns for your health, MOVE, offer to sell you home to the large "corporation" next to you. It will give them a home to provide to their workers who don't have problems with the conditions they're in.
The dairy business, like anything else, SUCKS right now. I'm not trying to convince people to lay off these CAFO's or even the small dairy farmers, but we all really can't do without them. And instead of complaining about all of this, why don't you all try and put your ingenious ideas together and come up with a plan to use the "shit" in the ever so popular "green" way so that you don't have to smell it anymore... and maybe make some money off of it at the same damn time.
