Beef Processing in Washington State

Some work at the Agri Beef processing plant in Toppenish, Washington. The plant is considered a model in the industry with high safety standards, a biogas plant that converts animal waste into electricity, the tracking of meat from farm to table and a unionized labor force that process high end, organic and grass fed beef from across the Pacific Northwest. That doesn't mean it's a good place for the faint of heart, but for this meat eater, it was important to see and meet the folks doing this work for us. More photos below:
