Waterkeeper

The effects of the Hudson case involving an effort to tie Perdue Farms to alleged water pollution by one of its growers are still being felt.

That’s despite the fact that the Waterkeeper Alliance and others lost the argument in Federal Court last month.

Worcester County Commissioner Virgil Shockley a chicken grower himself told the Salisbury Daily Times that he runs into a lot of farmers who put their lives on hold while the case was decided.

Could court officials visit the Hudson Farm in Berlin next month?

Perhaps.

Lawyers representing Alan and Kristin Hudson and Perdue Farms recently asked the federal court to come in person to the couple’s farm.

They argue that a visit would help the court understand the evidence and provide a firsthand look at the farm’s chicken houses, manure shed and cow pastures among other things.
