Wisconsin CAFO Permits on Public Notice

This page lists public notice tips and pending livestock operation permits on public notice in Wisconsin. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) provides public notice for all pending livestock operation permits.

Use your voice to alert WDNR of your thoughts on industrial livestock facilities by submitting public comments and requesting public hearings.

The public notice table is updated bi-monthly. We will 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: January 2024

Here are tips on public notices and how to take action in Wisconsin:
