Questions from the Board:  Sue asked what annual shots are required.  Mr. Kuniegel responded that they will get regular shots including rabies.  Sue requests proof of annual rabies shots submitted.  Another concern is for runoff not to carry the manure into a wetland area.  Keith requested to answer the questions in section 8.2.B that are marked n/a and re-submit.
