County Site Analysis Reports

County Site Analysis Reports

The County Site Analysis Program, developed by South Dakota Department of Agriculture in 2013, provides counties with information on where ag development could take place, based on zoning rules, water availability and other factors.

“The methodology addresses the feasibility of locations for the development of concentrated animal feeding operations, agricultural processing and storage facilities, and other agriculturally-related commercial/industrial development,” according to the summary explanation in the county site analysis reports.

The reports gave sites a rating of “GOOD,” “BETTER,” or “BEST.” They also qualified some sites as “POTENTIALLY GOOD,” etc., if there was some factor that could be improved to improve the rating.

A railroad track that is currently unused in Bon Homme County, for example, would improve the rating if it were returned to use.
