NORA, Ill. (WBBM) — Opponents of a proposed giant dairy in northwest Illinois have won a victory.

The Chicago Tribune reports the dairy, proposed by California dairyman A.J. Bos, would be the largest in the state with 5,500 head of cattle.

The facility is already partially built, about 30 miles east of Galena.
