The processing plant is said to be one million square feet in size, once completed.
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.
On the other hand, several things being touted about this facility are definitely raising eyebrows. Among them:
Speculation has swirled in cattle country since last month’s announcement of a proposed 8,000 head per day beef processing plant in Rapid City, S.D. 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.
Many of those same questions are now being asked by Rapid City residents and officials who want more details about the proposed $1.1 billion project.
“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’re they’re going to come from and where we’re going to house them.”
There's a "creepy" factor in some of the descriptions surrounding this new meat plant. As NewsCenter1.TV reports:
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.
The purpose of this tech, according to the developers, is to make beef processing more efficient, producing less waste, and thereby making beef products more affordable for consumers. But we can't help think of a Terminator factory run by Cyberdyne Systems when we imagine robots, lasers and AI systems running a giant carcass harvesting facility.
"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 a project spokesperson, as quoted by NewsCenter1.tv.
Biodiesel? From carcasses?
It all begs the obvious question: Can the plant process carcasses other than cattle?
As we ponder this project, we also have to wonder about the economic dynamics at play here. With fertilizer shortages, diesel fuel price spikes and drought conditions affecting cattle feed and cattle production, it looks like the number of cattle available across America is going to significantly diminish in the years ahead. At the same time, the toxic vaccine injections will be killing off an increasing number of people over the coming decade, racking up millions of dead human carcasses across the country.
We aren't accusing this group of any nefarious plans, but we have to wonder if such a facility could have a "duel use" future, where it's not just cattle being rendered into fuel, but rather other types of carcasses that might be plentiful as the global depopulation agenda accelerates.
We welcome any clarification statement from the Western Legacy Development Corporation, if they are interested in sharing it with our audience.
And perhaps these concerns are unjustified. Perhaps it's just really advanced robots, lasers, AI and "air knives" being used to make hamburgers and collagen and biodiesel components. Maybe there's nothing weird about it. What do you think?

Mike Adams (aka the "Health Ranger") is the founding editor of NaturalNews.com, a best selling author (#1 best selling science book on Amazon.com called "Food Forensics"), an environmental scientist, a patent holder for a cesium radioactive isotope elimination invention, a multiple award winner for outstanding journalism, a science news publisher and influential commentator on topics ranging from science and medicine to culture and politics.
Mike Adams also serves as the lab science director of an internationally accredited (ISO 17025) analytical laboratory known as CWC Labs. There, he was awarded a Certificate of Excellence for achieving extremely high accuracy in the analysis of toxic elements in unknown water samples using ICP-MS instrumentation.
In his laboratory research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products.
Adams has also helped defend the rights of home gardeners and protect the medical freedom rights of parents. Adams is widely recognized to have made a remarkable global impact on issues like GMOs, vaccines, nutrition therapies, human consciousness.
