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.
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.
