Another beautiful country summer day … except for the stench that can be smelled for miles around.
Get ready, Lake Erie! You were hoping for fireworks? Sorry … you’re getting cowshit instead.
Steady stream of manure tankers leaving Hudson Dairy, headed north.
Another tanker convoy leaving Bleich Dairy. Here’s one application, west side of U.S. 127 just south of the CAFO. Tanker spraying liquid manure on cut hay field. Bean/Tiffin/Maumee watershed.
Another Bleich application, this time a tanker-dumpbox-dragline operation, on the west side of U.S. 127, just north of Addison. Also in the Bean/Tiffin/Maumee watershed.
It’s not just the headwaters of the Maumee and downstream Toledo; the Raisin and the cities of Adrian, Blissfield, Deerfield, Petersburg, Dundee, and all the way to Monroe are getting their fair share of crap, too.
Tanker application of liquid manure covering over 200 acres on the north side of Teachout Road between Gilbert and Pentecost Highways, in the Wolf Creek/South Branch/Raisin watershed. Wolf Creek, which is dammed downstream to become Lake Adrian, a drinking water source for the City of Adrian, cuts right through this field. Waterland/New Flevo. Massive stench from this one, could smell it 3 miles away for days.
