Iowa is a milk deficit state. And a group of local agri-businesses would like to help change that.
The group has put together a plan to build a 6,000-cow dairy in Shelby County, Iowa. Shelby County is located near the Nebraska border just northeast of the Omaha - Council Bluffs area.

Permit applications have been submitted to the Iowa Department of Natural Resources and the group hopes to have approval by December. Plans call for dirt work to begin in January with the dairy starting to milk its first cows in October 2006.
