Placer County Exploring A Possible Meat-Processing Plant


Placer County livestock producers are exploring a possible meat-processing plant near Sheridan.

Using a $75,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture and $50,000 from Placer County, the ranchers will study the feasibility of such a plant, targeted at cattle, pork and potentially other livestock. Placer County signed the agreement Monday to explore the slaughterhouse, said Chris Gray Garcia, spokesman with Placer County.

The business plan is expected to be completed this summer, with a decision on whether to move ahead with the slaughterhouse soon after.
