MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The state Department of Natural Resources is fining a Marshall-based animal food facility $27,500 after it allegedly illegally disposed of animal matter.

The Wisconsin State Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1sLt26I ) the 14 claims against Bailey Farms stem in part from a 2010 visit by a DNR official responding to a waste dumping complaint.

The facility that turns dead livestock into animal food also agreed to bring its town of Medina operation into compliance with state environmental laws as part of the Dane County judgment.

DNR officials also witnessed alleged violations in 2012 and 2013, including pollutants running from a vehicle storage building to the Manushua River.

A man who described himself as the operations manager but didn't want to give his name said he had no comment Saturday.
