In this photo taken Nov. 11. 2015, barns containing about 1,000 pigs each, are  are scattered in clusters at Seabord Foods' Ladder Creek hog feeding operation near Tribune, Kan. The operation is the nation's second largest confined hog feeding farm and the company is set to build another site nearby if granted a permit by the state. The company is pumping wells that had been idled for a decade. Environmentalists and some residents fear that instead of preserving the remaining water for residents, the county will be a desert once the hogs and the water are long gone.
