THESE RHINOS ARE SO HAPPY ABOUT THE ‘MEATPACKERS GETTING BUSTED’ NEWS story THAT THEY’RE STACKING UP TO TAKE A LOOK – MAYBE THEY CAN JUMP THE FENCE TOO!! LOL (WHAT?!)
We thought they only picked fruits and vegetables. Now they’re packing animals too? They’re slaughtering them, then shipping them to PARTS UNKNOWN for Anthony Bourdain’s personal use? Now that’s a job everybody wants.
meatpacking – meat-processing. WHICH IS IT? WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE?
Animal Processing and Animal Packing facilities are protected by the USA government.
Nobody knows what really goes on there. The public is not allowed an up close and personal view – you know, like school kids get to go to dairy plants (actually bottling plants) to see how milk is made, actually how milk is bottled (not made). There are no school trips to a slaughter house now called a meat – not animal – processing plant for the purpose of sanitizing the act for public approval. Kind of like enhanced interrogation isn’t called torture, and death by enhanced interrogation isn’t called slaughter, but it really is.
“A slaughter plant breaks down the whole carcass into cuts of meat, whereas a rendering facility produces a variety of by-products.
There are two types of rendering facilities – independent and integrated.
An independent plant is one that picks up grease, blood, feathers and offal (internal organs and entrails) for further processing and development.
Integrated facilities are physically connected to the slaughter plant and operate in conjunction with each other.
The by-products of slaughter are used to make several essential products that fall into two categories: edible and inedible.
Inedible: tallow and grease for livestock feed, blood meal, soap and fatty-acids.
Edible: these plants process fatty animal tissue into edible fats and proteins. The only material that goes into these products (which are USDA and FSIS inspected) are fats from the animals carcass. THERE IS NO BONE OR OTHER INEDIBLE MATERIAL THAT ENTERS THE EDIBLE FOOD SUPPLY…Source
Bureau Of Labor Statistics list those who work in the industry as of May 2016 as:
51-3023 Slaughterers and Meat Packers
Work in slaughtering, meat packing, or wholesale establishments performing precision functions involving the preparation of meat. Work may include specialized slaughtering tasks, cutting standard or premium cuts of meat for marketing, making sausage, or wrapping meats. Excludes “Meat, Poultry, and Fish Cutters and Trimmers” (51-3022) who perform routine meat cutting. https://www.bls.gov/oes/current/oes513023.htm
So, these are government listed jobs with estimated hourly and yearly wages. Depending on state it could range from 18k to 33k annual income.
Yeah, so why are they hiding workers who aren’t plant-pickers? Looks like because they can. The slaughter industry is anything but transparent. What goes on there – what really goes on there – humans rarely see or even hear about. It’s a corrupt, evil environment that needs to see the light of sunshine.
For the activists who get in? and then report on it? They’re persecuted. Forever.
OPEN THE DOORS BOYS AND GIRLS.
Animal Processing COW Processing PANDA PROCESSING
Animal Rendering PIG Rendering REINDEER RENDERING
Animal Packing BIRD Rendering DOG PACKING
They’re Processing the LITHUANIAN for rendering and packing.
I can’t help but think of the families of all those enslaved, tortured, slaughtered, broken up, destroyed forever, by the Hand of Human Men & Women & Children who through their actions say, YOU DON’T MATTER BECAUSE WE DON’T CARE.
ICE Raid At Meatpacking Plant Leads To 97 Immigrants Arrested

Ninety-seven people were taken into custody during a federal immigration raid at a Tennessee meat processing plant on Thursday, civil rights activists told the Associated Press.
The raid, which took place at Southeastern Provision, a meat processing plant in Bean Station in Tennessee, detained 86 people for being in the country illegally and 11 others based on criminal charges, spokeswoman Tammy Spicer for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency told the AP.
“U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), Internal Revenue Service – Criminal Investigation Division, and the Tennessee Highway Patrol, executed a federal criminal search warrant at Southeastern Provisions.
During that search, HSI encountered 97 individuals who are subject to removal from the United States,” Spicer said in a statement sent to Newsweek…
Brooklyn-based startup Modern Meadow, founded in 2011, has secured a total of $53.5 million in funding to grow leather in labs—instead of from livestock.
The cruelty-free business model could end the slaughter of animals for leather goods, but it also has another benefit— cutting down on the physically and chemically intensive processes needed to produce leather using traditional means.
Biofabrication also allows them to “design, grow, and assemble collagen” along with other proteins to produce leather that is biologically identical to traditional leather, minus the unwanted details that make traditional leather processing toxic.
“We’re making a material that has no hair flesh or fat on it. So the liming and toxicity you see elsewhere in the leather trade is eliminated,” Modern Meadow CEO and co-founder Andras Forgacs noted.
And because the laboratory fabrication process gives them more control, designers could order leather with specific characteristics rather than simply choosing from what’s naturally available. This flexibility would help the company secure its market and achieve their goal of becoming the world’s go-to source of leather.
