Eight dairy operations, as
well as some poultry
facilities and orchard
acreage, lay in the im
mediate and downstream
vicinity of the dumpsite.
The women’s concern over
the problem of milk quality
touched home with one of the
few men in the
midday session, dairyman
Nelson Brenneman, of
Spring Grove Rl. Bren

Brenneman, who ships to
Green’s Dairy in York, says
that his market officials are
concerned because of their
memory of the public
boycott against milk during
the Three Mile Island
nuclear plant crisis in March
of 1979. Although no
radiation was ever found in
milk from farms nearby, the
publicity surrounding the
possibility caused a drop in

So, even though no

retail sales problems.
“And that’s all it would
take for them to cut off
pickups to our farm and
others nearby in the same

“And, who else is going to
come in here and pick it

Lecrones raise poultry and
fruit on their Seven Valleys
R 1 farm, just across the
valley and a small stream
from where Stabatrol plans
its disposal vaulting.
Lecrone says that bis

Longenecker’s Hatchery, is
supporting his opposition to
the dump, and has already
written letters to both
elected officials and DER
