Valley Meat Co. plans to open Aug. 5

July 18, 2013 • Local News

Valley Meat Co. is set to begin operating Aug. 5, the plant’s attorney said Thursday.

But the opening depends on an Aug. 2 federal hearing, when an Albuquerque judge overseeing a lawsuit by animal protection groups will decide whether to halt operations for another six months to a year.

Attorney A. Blair Dunn, representing the horse meat processing plant located near Roswell and another plant awaiting a permit in Gallatin, Mo., said Valley Meat is hiring workers and will be ready to go if the judge finds in favor of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
