Read about that yesterday. Pretty interesting. Hope it works out.

It is rather frustrating to see sky high beef retail prices when the producer's market is flat.

I forget what current packer profit margins are but it's sickening.

Awesome. First plant is supposed to be in Nebraska and slaughter 1500 cattle a day.

You can still try and buy from your local producer and go through a local locker.

I needs to. Hope it does.

The packing company mafia has been making all the $$$ in the past couple of decades.

Maybe states need to start their own meat inspection.

The USDA is complicit in that sale of meat in the US.

Unless it's imported of course.. There's no telling what kind of kangaroo azz holes people eat from imported meat.

No fuggin' reason in the world we ought to be importing meat. None.

Yes. USDA inspection is a terrible burden to overcome for the small processor and producer.

The big packers love all the rules and regs....because they purchased them.

Yep.

More weaponization of federal regulatory agencies.

I’ve seen farmer owned grain elevators, soybean and corn processing plants that failed miserably. Maybe this will work, but a1500 head a day processing plant is one sixth or less than some of the big beef processing plants. Volume drives efficiency.
If they’re asking for investors, I’ll run from it.

It happens in every heavily regulated industry. We always called it regulatory capture when dealing with utilities and public utility commissions.

Efficiency isn't everything. That's how you got mechanically separated chicken and pink slime.


I sold fat beef for 4.50. The small processor cut it up and the customer picked it up.


We all made a little money.

In the article I read they know that 1500 head a day is small. My understanding is that the investors are ranchers who know their future is on the line. It is do or die.

If the investor is a cattle grower then they can make money in higher live cattle prices Meaning the profit in the business does not have to be as great. It is a classic case of taking the middle mans cut.

I'm not in this business so I don't know if this will work or not, but I SURE hope so.

Tillamook cheese is a cooperative business. They seem to do well.

Nonsense.

They don't produce as much as Kraft so therefore they must be going bankrupt.




Profit driven AG is almost unknown by Production driven AG standards.
