When planning a hog operation, the selection of an appropriate site is the most critical aspect of the planning stage. Naturally, there are many factors that must be considered when choosing a site.

The location of the operation in relation to property lines, to neighbours and to rural residential developments can determine the potential nuisance issues for a proposed operation as well as other considerations relative to its future growth. Greater separation distances afford more opportunity for odours to become diluted by mixing with the air. As the intensity of odours is reduced, the inconvenience to the neighbours will proportionally be alleviated.

The contents from this set of articles include:

  • Setback from Physical Features
