For the past two years the Land Management Information Center's GIS Project Services team has been assisting the Minnesota Environmental Quality Board with the preparation of a generic environmental impact statement on animal agriculture. This poster will summarize the process used to collect feedlot locations across the state. It will also illustrate how this data and GIS tools can be used to better understand the distribution and impact of feedlots in Minnesota.
