If factory farms are required to add fencing, buffers, screening who enforces it?

No matter how large or small, farms located next to neighboring homes ask for trouble if they add more animals then their land can hold. Not only are the farmers disrespectful of their neighbors enjoyment of their own properties, but they have no concern for others health. Neighbors can tolerate a handful of animals while they live in agriculture zoned areas, but when they pay property taxes on rural residential acreages and are located in small communities with each living on one acre plots, with each property having separate wells and septic systems, the next door farm should know better then to enlarge his farm from a handful of animals to hundreds more requiring more buildings. This has naturally caused anger from all nearby neighbors, but since it is agriculture, no one will take on this matter with the odors, the noises and the dust. Because the farm is considered small( not to the neighbors), nothing can be done....no one will listen..... we are told to contact a different agency and totally get the run around. Not even the county health department will return our calls or respond to our letters. We all would like to put up fencing, tall shrubs and screening, but feel that the farm should do this and pay the cost. Plus, to block out all the nuisances the buffering and screening should be located as close as possible to the farm buildings with the animals and the manure. My question is who specifically does one ask to check out this site: is fencing only done out of respect at some farms, or can it be required or mandated or expected? Or is this just a civil matter that the courts decide in a lawsuit? If this is our only option will the Right to Farm Act or Farm Bureau kick in to help protect the farmer? Selling and moving is not a option since now our property values have been reduced and no one will want to live this close to such a large nuisance right next door. By the way, the farmer has only about 2.5 acres in the middle of nice ranch homes, alongside a fairway of a golf course, so you can see why we do not want to move. Why this farmer wants to live here and farm is a good question also.

I own a 57 acre farm in Tuscarawas County, Oh. 50 of the acres are wooded and are under a forestry program for producing hardwoods. I'd like to add 1 or 2 ponds in a currently wooded ravine. I'm interested in eventually using these for fish farming, but, don't know who to ask about the area that I'm considering for the ponds. My land is mostly rolling hills, but, this area being considered is a pretty deep ravine.
