Beef Processing Development

Opponents of slaughterhouse cancel meeting

Organizers decided there was no reason to hold the meeting after American Foods Group dropped Christian County as a possible site for a beef processing plant.

Aviation records shed light on slaughterhouse discussions

Four aircraft landed Thursday morning at the Hopkinsville-Christian County Airport, carrying individuals who were in town to discuss a proposed beef processing facility. Flight logs and public records hint at possible topics of discussion during the whirlwind of meetings that followed their arrival.

Cattle would be trucked to the site near the CSX rail line between Hopkinsville and Pembroke and slaughtered in a 500,000-square-foot facility. Other details are being kept secret, in part because the company secured non-disclosure agreements with local elected officials and industrial recruiters.
