United Equine CEO on slaughter plant: ‘We’re going into business’
The company that wants to build a horse processing plant in southwestern Missouri isn’t backing its plans off despite protests from many local residents. At an “informational meeting” Monday, United Equine CEO Sue Wallis said while a previous site for the plant has been ruled out, the company is moving forward and hopes to open a slaughter plant in the same area by September.
“Discussion’s over. Make all the noise you want. We’re going into business,” Wallis said.
