MADISON, Wis. (AP) The state Supreme Court is eliminating a regulatory hurdle for a large-scale dairy farm in central Wisconsin.

Golden Sands Dairy wants to create a 6,400-acre farm in Wood County. A state appeals court blocked the project in 2017 because the Town of Saratoga re-zoned the land for preservation four months after the dairy filed a building permit application.

The Supreme Court reversed the appellate ruling Tuesday. The court ruled in a 5-2 decision that once a building permit application is filed the applicant has a right to use all of the property as it's zoned at the time of the permit filing.

The town's attorney, Remzy Bitar, didn't immediately reply to an email.
