SARATOGA, Wis. (AP) – A judge has ruled in favor of a company that plans to build a large dairy operation in southern Wood County.

Judge Thomas Eagon on Thursday ordered the town of Saratoga’s building inspector to issue permits for seven structures for the Golden Sands Dairy.

The Wysocki family filed a lawsuit asking the judge to issue the permits. The family said it applied for the permits before the town placed a moratorium on new construction.

The Wysocki family wants to develop a farm with 7,000 acres and 5,300 animals near Wisconsin Rapids.

According to the town of Saratoga, the Wysockis didn’t submit all the necessary paperwork before the moratorium started. The Wysockis’ company said it met all requirements.

The Wisconsin Rapids Daily Tribune reports several hurdles remain before the project can continue.
