      A hearing started Tuesday on a challenge to a waste permit granted to a Kewaunee County farm.

      Kinnard Farms wants to expand to about 5,400 cows at it's Lincoln facility.

      The DNR approved the expansion plans, but several citizens are trying to stop the project. They claim the manure storage facilities would damage their wells.

      The hearing is scheduled to last three days.
