A judge has ruled that proceeds from the sale of several semi-truck loads of hogs at Hutterville Colony near Stratford will be forwarded to the Hutterite colony's corporation.
The Brown County Sheriff's Office impounded the animals after an April dispute concerning the sale of hogs and eventually sold them all.
The more than $160,000 in expenses incurred by the sheriff's office will be sent to the colony address.
But Judge Tony Portra did not specify Wednesday who would get the money.
Two groups are at odds over which branch of the Hutterite religion to follow. Though both groups continue to live and work at the colony, they've battled in recent years over control.
