Cattlemen's Heritage to build US$520 million beef plant in Iowa, US
Cattlemen's Heritage, an Iowa, US corporation with its roots in livestock production and barn construction, will build a US$520 million beef processing facility in Mills County, Iowa, the United States.
The plant will be a fully sustainable facility with a ‘Pasture to display case' traceability processing and will produce high quality beef in the US Midwest.
It will also bring to the region 800 jobs and US$1.1 billion in yearly, economic contributions. The facility is expected to process 2,000 head-per-day.
Construction is scheduled to begin in the spring of 2023.
"Cattlemen's Heritage will fill a critical gap in the beef supply deficit and help meet the expanding demand of consumers, producers and retailers," Cattlemen's Heritage principal developer Chad Tentinger said. "Cattle producers and retailers have recognised for quite some time that as more cattle production has moved north to the upper Midwest that we need the processing capacity to match it.
"The Cattlemen's Heritage facility will go a long way to resolving that ongoing challenge and delivering more quality beef from Midwest family farms to consumers."
