Feedlots

MPCA Finanical Report 2019

Minnesota's regulatory feedlot program is conducted through a cooperative arrangement between the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) and County Government. This cooperative program is known as "county delegation" or the "county feedlot program."  A county feedlot program is established by the transfer of regulatory authority from the MPCA to the county.  County feedlot programs have responsibility for implementing state feedlot regulations including registration, permitting, inspections, education and assistance, and complaint follow up.

Faribault County Planning and Zoning administers the Feedlot Program for feedlots under 1,000 animal units.  For more information on the Feedlot Program contact Planning and Zoning at 507-526-2388 or click on the following links:
