Country Aire Farms will pay a $45,000 fine to Brown County, Wis., to close the books on an accidental manure spill in March 2008. As part of the settlement, the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources agreed not to pursue further legal action.

The spill occurred in early March of last year. Upon discovery, farm owners contacted authorities and worked to minimize damage. There was no evidence of a fish kill, according to news reports.
