Entrepreneur gauging interest in processing local beef

BY DAN THALMANN
 
WASHINGTON – An entrepreneur from Wymore, Neb., will be in the area next week, pitching an idea for a farmer-owned beef processing plant. Ivan Garrett, of Trail’s End Packing Company, said he’s been in the cattle business all his life, in the packing industry off and on for about 10 years in various management capacities and has been a minister for over 40 years, and he has an idea for a better way to process cattle which would benefi t cattlemen, rather than huge corporate beef processing companies.
