Alliance CAFO Brochures
This brochure outline highlights many of the main adverse health impacts of a factory hog farm on workers, residents and children. For example, school children within 1/2 mile of a factory hog farm have a 1 in 5 chance of developing asthma compare to 1 in 14 living 10 miles away. Mount Judea hog farm is less than a 1/2 mile from the Mount Judea Schools.
This brochure outlines both the factory hog farm's danger to Buffalo River tourism and the small town of Mount Judea and its residents. The factory hog farm will create 10 jobs, it places over 500 jobs at risk. Deep property value losses of 40% or more in Mount Judea more than offset any new revenues from the hog farm, placing the schools at risk, and threatening the future of the town.
The factory hog farm sits atop Karst, a limestone formation characterized by faults, caves and tunnels. Unlike other geology, Karst is ill suited to contain spills that most certainly will happen, and any accident will contaminate the Buffalo River's pristine waters, critical habitat for endangered species, the environment, and adversely impact tourism.
