In my area, they can try to classify you as feedlot if you are above a certain density. Then they can hit you up for permits and zoning hocus. Don't know exactly what the density is, but I imagine it's pretty high.

I'm in the Tampa area its call Odessa.i Believe we are zoned agricuture.I have about 20 cows and calves total.Having problem with neighbor. They are claiming it smell but not from the cattle but from the calves i lost and buried on the property.They called EPC of Hillsborough County.The investigator call out and could not find a odor from the buried calves.The EPC guy said other agencies have be called but he did ask about the number of cows alotted for the property.I told him i'm not sure but that i thought there wasn't a limit.

You might want to check your deed as it may have a deed restriction on it limiting the number of animals per acre.

We have owned this property for over 30 years,I'm not sure but did they have deed restrictions back then in the deeds ? The neighbor is just a city slicker in the county.

20 cows and calves on five acres. Man thats gotta stink to high heavens. :???:
You in the manure business?
Bet you really got a fly problem.
I got a hundred head on 150 acres and fixing to cut it back to 75.
I'm having issues with that many cows and getting a Ag exemptions fixing to loose 75 acres. Florida sucks
Local Gov here is all about the all mighty dollar.

the new avatar rocks dude! told ya!
Thats my guard Donkey June, she opens up a can of whoop arse on the dogs and coyotes.
She's about to pop with another.
To the man above hope you get your Agg we been on the same property or my wifes family has since the early fifties.
They have been going after us for 4 years in a row now and pulled the exemption last year on a technicality.
If we don't get it back this year they can stick it, tired of court and depositions and audits, they wear ya down eventually till ya just say F it.
Meanwhile the local Ag man gets a 155g exempt on his little 30 acre spread and I am paying more for a empty lot next to my house than he is on 30 acres a big house and a pool. Another example of a abuse by a civil servant
This ain't the America our fore fathers planned I'm sure of that much.
I'm a firm believer what goes around comes around . Any way good luck and welcome to my world we're in the same boat and it's getting crowded.
