Hand County Commissioners are approving a 9,000 head hog confinement for Ratio LLC.
It’s the first such approval of an animal feedlot aided by the state’s livestock development program. That program reverts taxes collected on the project back to the county.
According to the Governor’s Office of Economic Development, the county could receive up to half a million dollars in incentives from that state program.
JD Wangsness is the Hand County Commission Chair. He says the incentive program didn’t come up during the meeting.
