After completing the review of an environmental impact statement last Friday, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources granted final approval of a Wisconsin Pollution Discharge Elimination System (WPDES) permit to Rosendale Dairy. The dairy, located near the town of Rosendale in Fond du Lac County, will now be able to grow their current herd of 700 cows up to their goal of 4,000 cows.

Rosendale Dairy is owned in a partnership between established dairymen Jim Ostrom, John Vosters and Todd Willer.

“The approval of Rosendale Dairy’s permit is a positive move for Wisconsin’s dairy industry and for our state’s economy. We are pleased that the DNR recognized the dairy’s many efforts to protect the environment and public health by approving this $70 million project,” said Laurie Fischer, executive director of the Dairy Business Association (DBA).

In addition to the WPDES permit, Rosendale Dairy sought and obtained 32 other permits that were required to construct and operate the facility.
