A company owned by a Wyoming state legislator is looking at opening a horse meat processing plant in south-central Missouri.
The company, United Equine, whose chief executive is Wyoming representative Sue Wallis, is studying a site near Mountain Grove, Missouri, for the plant, which would slaughter and process horses for human consumption. The company is currently conducting a feasibility study, Wallis told Meatingplace in an e-mail.
“That phase will probably take a couple of months, which if we find that it is a fit--so far all indications are good--we will move into an aggressive timeline to develop and implement a full business plan that (if everything goes right, and nothing goes wrong) would have us opening the doors and beginning operations around September,” she wrote.
