South Dakota's socialized dairy industry threatens Minnesota watersheds


South Dakota's socialized dairies are wreaking habitat havoc on the state's border with Minnesota.
In January, a South Dakota judge will hear arguments from dairy supporters and critics and then decide whether the county approval of the dairy was legal. Regardless of what decision comes down on legality, Brenda Boeve and other Minnesotans believe that putting a huge dairy farm here simply isn't right.
Get the story here.

In the above image a phallus competes for the skyline with ubiquitous wind turbines near the divide between the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers on Buffalo Ridge over Oak Lake, part of a Brookings water supply and tributary of the Big Sioux River in extreme eastern South Dakota.

As Hendricks, Minnesota sues to prevent the effects of cattle shit from another South Dakota dairy and cross-state pollution rules cease to exist my home town is struggling to digest the numbers of Spanish speaking wage slaves.

The crony capitalism that keeps South Dakota the 8th worst state for the working class is destroying lands promised to native peoples by treaty and Elkton struggling to find enough housing for migrant workers often living in squalor.
