Egg Industry At Issue

Some protest Rembrandt Industries at BV hearing

For a handful of Rembrandt residents, it's still rotten eggs over Rembrandt Enterprises.

At a public hearing Monday night at the Rembrandt Fire Station, several citizens voiced their concerns over odor problems with both the pullet site northwest of Rembrandt and the farmers applying chicken manure to their fields.

The hearing was hosted by the Buena Vista County Board of Supervisors for a permit sought by Rembrandt Enterprises to expand its pullet operation by one pullet building and manure building, adding about 450,000 birds.

Almost 50 people attended the public hearing. Environmental Health Director Kim Johnson presented her findings on the Master Matrix, a new scoring system by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources.
