Oklahoma ag board to vote on new poultry regulations


December 7, 2018

TULSA, Okla. (AP) — The Oklahoma Agriculture Board is set to vote next week on a set of emergency poultry regulations after the state suspended dispensing new permits in October.

A key guideline in the new proposal would require poultry houses, with more than 30,000 birds, to be at least a quarter-mile (0.4 kilometers) from someone's home. It would also mandate a half-mile distance from schools and other incorporated city limits, Tulsa World reported .

The suspension of new permits was implemented largely due to residents complaining about the expansion of poultry house construction.
