LENOX – Cleanup is underway at a Taylor County farm following reports of an overflowing manure pit Tuesday afternoon.

Barrans Farms, owned by Steve Kerns, will work with a contractor to empty the manure basin and clean up spilled manure on the site. The farm is a small hog finishing farm about three miles southwest of Lenox.

While investigating Tuesday, DNR field staff saw a path where manure flowed into an unnamed tributary of the East Fork of the One Hundred and Two River. However, DNR staff have not observed any dead fish.

The DNR will be on site Wednesday as it continues to investigate the incident.
