Michigan CAFO Permits on Public Notice

The following table lists pending livestock operation permits and land application sites on public notice in Michigan. Public notices are government notices of public comment periods and major projects that may impact the public.

Share your concerns about industrial livestock facilities with the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy (EGLE) by submitting public comments and requesting public hearings.

This table is updated bi-monthly. We do our best to give ample notice for every pending permit. However, given the nature of public notices and our capacity we will, unfortunately, miss some permits on public notice. Last updated: October 2023
