Premium Standard Farms, Inc. (PSF) operates a Concentrated Animal Feeding Operation (CAFO)
named the Whitetail Farm in northwest Missouri. A nitrification and denitrification system has
been designed, constructed and placed into operation for six individual sites of 8,800 grow-finish
pigs each for a total of 52,800 head. Nitrification and denitrification occurs at a single wastewater
treatment plant centrally located on the farm.
