Oregon mega-dairy owner caught in prostitution sting

Posted August 25

— The owner of a controversial mega-dairy in Boardman, Oregon, has been arrested on charges of patronizing a prostitute and possessing methamphetamine.

Lost Valley Farm owner Greg te Velde was arrested during a sting in Kennewick, Washington. The Benton County Jail website says he was booked Aug. 19 and is free on bail.

The East Oregonian reports (https://is.gd/PPtgxI ) his cell phone would not accept messages. Lost Valley Farm general manager Travis Love said in a written statement that the company takes the allegations seriously, but can't comment.

Oregon regulators approved the 30,000-cow dairy farm in March, turning aside complaints from a coalition of health and environmental groups.
