American Midwest Ranchers Build Their Own Processing Plants

The cost of commodities has threatened our economic survival, increasing gas, housing, and food costs at the top of that list. Our meat prices are out of control, so much so that Cattle Ranchers are building their own processing plants. This action is a long-overdue trend dating back to the 1970s when there was a consolidation in the beef industry that involved 80% of the nation’s slaughterhouses owned and run by four companies, Tyson Foods, National Beef Packing, Cargill, and JBS.

Since the Coronavirus pandemic crippled our nation’s economy and workforce, the U.S. Department of Agriculture encourages a more diverse supply concerning the beef industry.

Rusty Kemp, a Nebraska Rancher, is leading the charge and states, “It’s probably time somebody does something about it.” With the $300 million from Ranchers, they will take their power back by building the slaughterhouses themselves and cutting out the middleman who is capitalizing and raising prices on the cost of meats.

This fall began the endeavor of building the Sustainable Beef plant that is taking place near North Platte, Nebraska, on some 400 acres. There is also talk of Ranchers in Wisconsin, Iowa, and Idaho, who will cut out the middleman and build their own slaughterhouse processing plants.

The USDA shows that during the mid-1970s, the number of livestock slaughter plants declined from 2,590 in 1977 to 1,387 in 1992, while big processors dominated, handling only 12% of cattle in 1977 to 65% by 1997.

These Midwestern Ranchers have no intention of replacing and competing against the powerhouse four companies located in 24 areas; however, they will equip their new facilities with more modern and updated tools of the trade, less employee turnover, and higher annual pay benefits, and work schedules.

This new work environment would create closer relationships with all involved ensuring the companies would market their beef domestically and internationally as a higher quality product.

There’s a revolution taking place within the Ranchers and Farming communities in the Midwest; Chad Tentinger is building a Cattlemen’s Heritage plant near Council Bluffs, Iowa, and said: “paying Ranchers more and providing dividends to those who own shares, hopes it will spur more plants to open, and the new competitors will add openness to cattle markets.”

According to the North American Meat Institute, a trade group that includes large and mid-size plants, the biggest challenge will be the shortage of workers in the industry. The average wage and benefits of $22.00 per hour currently leave not enough workers to fill these plants.

The question is whether the smaller plants will be able to pay Ranchers and still profit themselves?

Let’s not forget that China bestowed upon us the Coronavirus, but they started buying ownership of American meat plants, which looks and feels more like an economic pandemic.

COVID-19 Meat Crisis Ties to Communist China

The Coronavirus created a health pandemic and an economic crisis where Americans have to re-invent many aspects of their lifestyles. This is how we progress into a better future by stepping out of our comfort zones and creating new environments and ideas that add quality to our personal and professional lives.

I believe these Ranchers have the right idea to keep the middleman out and protect not only the quality of the meat but also the infrastructure of those whose passion it is to provide American meat products without being compromised.

America continues to witness the fight or flight mode in so many routine areas of our lives that we once took for granted. The Coronavirus pandemic combined with the Biden administration has created the perfect storm to assault our freedoms.

Excellent work, Susan!! It is so encouraging to see true capitalism, as opposed to fasco-Marxist crony “capitalism” (which is the polar opposite of real capitalism) the characterizes the fake Biden presidency, come up with solutions.

True patriots that have a work ethic and strong resolve will find a light through this present darkness. Ms. Price, I can’t imagine the heart ache that you have had to deal with by losing your son, but I thank you for all that you are doing for veterans. I will never forget my fallen brothers and sisters. Respectfully, a Wyoming veteran

Thank you my friend for your kind sentiments…We live our life never knowing what the future holds, during times of Peace, son’s lay their fathers to rest, and during times of War, fathers lay their sons to rest, it’s unnatural for a parent to lay their child to rest, and it becomes one of the greatest obstacles in this life time as one could only imagine. The pain of loosing a child no matter what age is the most difficult cross to bear…but the journey of meeting so many loving and supportive people, the ability to reach other brothers and sisters in arms and to know a difference is being made in the name of my son allows this journey to be filled with an unconditional love. That is how I make it through this heart ache. I also know my son loved our creator, he loved being a U.S. Marine and he loved America and Americans.

Edicts Gone Wild – Statehouses, City Halls, Kingdoms or Oligarchies?

When the CDC’s data shows that children under 5 are less than 3% of the cases and have a statistically zero percent death rate, I wonder what experts Secretary Becerra has been consulting. And since these mandates reduce parental involvement, along with social, educational, and health quality, I think the Secretary has missed the boat on this one…

Americans are Experiencing the Toxic Taste of Socialism in 2022

Top leaders entrusted to protect our safety and liberties have turned blind eyes to the lawlessness that advances their political agenda narratives, condoned neo-Marxist indoctrination of children, and weaponized police state intimidation of those who resist. President Ronald Reagan issued an urgent reminder that “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.”

Studies Show Horrific Contaminations of PCR Test Swabs

This swab appears to have a fiberglass coating. This, of course, could rip, cut, and tear flesh, causing bleeding. Broken pieces could become lodged in the nose causing infection. This additional study concludes that material and chemical abnormalities in the material at the tip of the swab are likely responsible for damage to the nasal passage, resulting in bleeding and other injuries…

The Electric Vehicle Scam

The Electric Vehicle Scam

In order to match the 2,000 cars that a typical filling station can service in a busy 12 hours, an EV charging station would require 600, 50-watt chargers at an estimated cost of $24 million and a supply of 30 megawatts of power from the grid. That is enough to power 20,000 homes. It can take 30 minutes to 8 hours to recharge a vehicle between empty or just topping off. What are the drivers doing during that time?

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough #13

Is the new Paxlovoid pill just a “reworked” ivermectin? What do you think of the data? Love the show. My question is, is it safe to take the provolone iodine with hypothyroid? There is a history of heart disease in my husband’s family so the thought of my boys getting any vac scares me, especially since I have 3 teenage sons. Will there be a ‘safe’ alternative? Will Novovax or Covax be safer?

Will Omicron Become Nature’s Miracle Vaccine?

After nearly two years into this pandemic, with the U.S. reporting a record high of more than 1 million new COVID-19 cases earlier this month, many are wondering when a sufficient number of the population will reach a level of “herd immunity” so that the virus can no longer find a place to reproduce. Might omicron actually be a blessing…
