B.C. based company looks to turn old beef plant in Moose Jaw into sow processing facility

A B.C.-based company is launching a feasibility study to convert the former beef plant in Moose Jaw into a sow processing facility.

Donald’s Fine Foods operates the Thunder Creek pork plant in Moose Jaw and would operate the old beef plant as an independent facility for sow processing.

Donald’s Industry Relations manager, Neil Ketilson, says producers in Western Canada would benefit since most cull sows are shipped to U.S. processors with high transport costs.

The proposal would create 100 jobs.

The feasibility study is expected to be completed in a couple months.
