Concentrated animal production has varying economic impacts. Houses within 3 miles may go down in value. Land and houses outside of three miles either go up in value or are unaffected. For rural counties, CAFOs normally have a positive economic impact as they increase employment, increase demand for feed and improve the tax base.
