Update discusses Meat Producer's Inc. v. McFarland, and the Dallas appellate court’s holding that operation of the feed lot adjacent to the plaintiff's land would interfere with the best use of the land and therefore constituted an actionable nuisance. The author contends that the effect of McFarland will be to facilitate the use of the nuisance action for regulating land use conflicts. Industry must now locate facilities only after careful consideration of their effects on future residential patterns, this will help eliminate future land use conflicts before they arise.
