Does California really need another slaughterhouse?

The City of Tulare has its sights on the development of a new slaughterhouse. To the detriment of animals, water/air quality and public lands, the proposed plant would allow for the slaughter of 1,600 cattle daily. Visit the Grace Factory Farm Project to learn about the impact of intensive beef production. This website is a wonderful resource for fact-hungry consumers and advocates. Also, take a peak at EBAA’s report on dairy cow production in the Golden State.

Public comments are welcome regarding Tulare's slaughterhouse proposal. Share your concerns with the Tulare Planning Department by November 15, 2007:
