new equine slaughter plant
 
Oregon could be the site of the latest proposed horse processing plant since Congress lifted its ban on USDA funding for horsemeat inspections.

Thats great news. I just hope we get one more in the middle of the USA. The more plants that get up and going the quicker the price of horses go up.

YEAH!!! No more watching them have to be shipped to Canada!!!

I do feel the need to go hug my two pet horses and tell them that will never be thier fate, but for those who suffer the trips to other countries, thier problems will be over sooner, and with luck, more humanely!

I'm wondering what ever became of the plans for the one in the south (missouri or arkensas or alabama, I don't remember).

A plant in Oregon doesn't do much to help the horses in my area.

Why is that it is the truth. Slaughter plants get rid of the horses no one wants. It helps get the price of the Good horses up.

I think they're looking at putting it in a different part of missouri. It's not dead yet.

I hope so. And re-reading my post, I can't believe I missed my typo on Arkansas :lol:.

I guess I was spelling phonetically:oops:.
