Meet The Billion-Dollar Meat “Rendering” Facility: Robotics, Artificial Intelligence Systems, And “Air Knives”

We have been reporting on all the meat processing facilities that have burned down or are part of a terrible catastrophe.

We know why this is happening.

A massive meat rendering facility will be built in Rapid City, South Dakota 2023, and this project has raised eyebrows among the local residents.

The facility is worth $1.1 billion, and it’s called ‘’Western Legacy Development Corporation’’. It intends to bring large-scale production of 8,000 cattle daily.

Many question the availability of such large numbers of cattle and/or bison in the region, the availability of sufficient labor and housing for the incoming workforce,” Ag Web stated.

“The principals that are involved still have a lot of homework to do,” City Councilman Ritchie Nordstrom told South Dakota Public Radio. “Where do we get those employees? If the number that is being recited is close to being accurate, we don’t know where they’re going to come from and where we’re going to house them.”

“We have an affordable housing shortage in Rapid City,” said City Councilman Pat Jones.

“The population continues to grow faster than the market can replace the housing.”

Ag Web shared these details.

If realized, the plant would become the largest in North America and one of the largest beef plants in the world.

Western Legacy’s proposal would create 2,400 jobs and Kingsbury said the plant would utilize the latest technology available.

In an interview with SDPB’s Lori Walsh on “In the Moment,” Kingsbury said her company is “holding this project privately and funding it in-house.”

City councilman Nordstrom questioned if the industrial park could fit the 1-million-square-foot facility into the park or build the infrastructure needed for the plant without extra financing from the city.

“I would like to see a meat processing plant, but right now the conditions for the current proposed location don’t fit the parameters,” Nordstrom said.

Transportation, water use and odor are also concerns. Jones has heard from constituents who worry about heavy rail and truck traffic near their neighborhoods. He’s also worried about the potential for unpleasant smells like those caused by the Federal Beef plant, which closed after a 2002 fire at its central Rapid City location.

People think that there are some creepy aspects of the meat-processing facility. The technology now for the proposed beef plant has robotics, artificial intelligence systems, and railroad offloading integration.

NewsCenter1 emphasized:

The Western Legacy Development Corporation facility will process cattle and bison completely with the use of robotics and artificial intelligence making processing easier, safer and more efficient and producing consistent cuts of meat. They will use laser technology and air knives which use a high velocity air stream to dehide animals. A technology currently only used in Europe, Asia and Australia due to the high cost of retro fitting current facilities.

“We’ve been in business since 1929, so we’re very familiar with the bi-products that will be prepared out of this facility. We’re looking at a meat and bone meal that hopefully we can utilize not only domestically but also export. We’re also looking at making tallow and yellow grease products that not only can go into the feed ingredient business but also into the industrial and maybe the biodiesel industries,” said Bednarek.

Natural News reported:

On the positive side, this could provide new competition for Cargill, Tyson and the other monopolistic food giants that are steeped in a lot of evil practices. Perhaps a more independent, privately-owned beef production facility would provide food supply chain redundancy and increased efficiencies that would ultimately lead to lower food prices for Americans.
