There are five different permits administered by the State that can be issued for a feedlot or manure storage area:
Table 1 lists the permit types and when they are required based on animal units. The table also outlines when an environmental assessment worksheet is required. The environmental review process will be discussed in more detail in later sections. Check with your local “planning and zoning office to see if your county or township requires “additional permits. If applicable, a permit will not be issued until the environmental review process is complete. Construction activities cannot begin until all of the appropriate permits are issued. Application forms are available online or by contacting your RGU.
