Small regional plant in North Platte will increase industry’s processing capacity.

During the summer of 2019, the beef industry experienced significant disruption when a beef plant in Holcomb, Kansas had a major fire. Then, during the spring of 2020, the beef industry again experienced significant disruption due to the COVID-19 pandemic. These events highlighted the need for more capacity in the beef packing industry and led a group of cattlemen and investors to form Sustainable Beef LLC in order to build a small regional plant in North Platte, Neb.
