Temporary hold placed on Arkansas hog farm permits

Officials have put another temporary hold on new permits for hog farms near the Buffalo National River in northern Arkansas.      It's the second moratorium placed on the permits for large or medium hog farms. The moratorium stems from a permit the state's environmental quality department issued for the C&H Hog Farm to operate.      Having the temporary suspension in place gives time for the Legislature to review future animal feeding operations in the Buffalo River Watershed. The hold can last for up to 180 days.      Minnesota-based food processor Cargill holds the contract on the hog farm. It has already self-imposed a moratorium on expansion of hog production in the watershed area.      Environmentalists have feared farm waste could taint the river, but studies have shown that hasn't happened.
