These maps and aerial views show the unsuitability of the land for the C&H Hog Farm and how this farm impacts the Mount Judea community, its schools and the downtown area. The hog barns and lagoon are less than an half mile from Mount Judea as the crow flies. Research shows that residents within 1 mile of a hog farm can experience health problems and the loss of property value. Of particular concern is the proximity of the farm to Mount Judea school.

Aerial Photo This photo shows the distances from the spray fields to the Mt Judea school, its track and playground.
Residences This image includes an overlay of structures and shows their proximity to the spray fields. Field numbers are shown in yellow. Many think of Mt Judea as an isolated community with few residents when in fact there are numerous people directly impacted by this CAFO.
Karst Features This geological map of the application fields shows areas in red which are unsuited to waste application due to excessive slope or the presence of karst features such as rock outcroppings, sinkholes, etc. This map also shows the proximity of Mt Judea to the Buffalo River at Carver.

Phosphorus Levels This geological map is color-coded to show soil test phosphorus (STP) levels for each field. This data was provided in the C & H NMP and shows that considerable acreage is at or above optimum phosphorus levels prior to the application of any waste.
