New beef processing plant set to break ground in MO

American Foods Group is set to break ground on a new cattle processing facility in Warren, County Missouri.

Missouri Ag Director Chris Chinn tells Brownfield the coming $450 million plant will process 2,400 cattle daily.

“They’ll purchase from sale barns, direct off the farm; they’ll purchase as few a head as one, or they’ll purchase an entire goose neck trailer full, or a semi-trailer full,” she said.

Missouri Cattlemen’s Association President Bruce Mershon tells Brownfield the plant will help boost local market competition and safeguard against a lack of processing capacity like the backlogs caused by the Holcomb, Kansas plant fire and Covid19.
