Posted in All Agriculture

Mike Frauenkron, Fillmore County Feedlot Officer

Welcome to a New Year 2013. After a long medical absence from the Feedlot Office it is great to be back. It is that time of year again when Feedlots that re-registered in 2009 have to update their Registrations again this year. The Feedlot Office will send out all registrations that need to be updated in the mail along with a letter of explanation of what to do. Make any corrections if needed. You will need to sign and date the form and send it back to the Feedlot Office at Zoning/Feedlot Office, 101 Fillmore St., Preston, MN 55965. Any questions please phone 507-765-2539.
