Butler County chicken farm

Eight chicken broiler barns sit near the home of John Kobza about 4 miles east of Bellwood in Butler County. Kobza said the picture illustrates how those participating in the chicken growing operations for Costco/Lincoln Premium Poultry Chicken Processing Plant are more than willing to live directly by their barns.

Thank you, Joel Sartore, for speaking up about another poultry-producing facility in Lancaster County ("Delay vote on poultry barns in county," Aug. 6).

I have been following this news item with concern ever since the details of the one near Denton evolved. And now this! Excellent review of the details: "Eight 600-foot-long buildings, each housing up to 47,500 birds" -- just an excerpt to whet your appetite. Thank you!
