Although the public is not notified of new or expanding poultry farms, adjoining land owners must be notified about new or expanding hog farms in Oklahoma.  Concern exists that hog factory farms may be moving into Arkansas (and possibly northeast Oklahoma) from North Carolina.  A controversial new hog farm in Arkansas is located near the Buffalo River, America's first National Scenic River.  The Illinois River and Tenkiller Lake have special setback protection from hog farms.  But is that enough protection?
