Investment JBS USA gives new opportunites for beef producers
The new facilities, housed in a 191,000-square-foot addition, began full operations the week of May 23.
"We are excited about the opportunity to add value to Hyrum through this strategic investment," said Jay Rawlings, JBS Hyrum Plant Manager. Originally built in 1936 by E.A. Miller Meat & Livestock Co., the Hyrum beef facility joined the JBS USA family in 2007 and processes nearly one-half million cattle per year. JBS Hyrum is a significant player in the international market, exporting approximately 20% of its production to countries including Japan, Taiwan and Mexico.
The completion of these new facilities is said to expand the company’s ability to meet the growing demand for ground beef. It also will strengthen the relationship with the region’s beef and dairy producers, whose high quality cattle have been a large measure of Hyrum’s historical success and customer satisfaction.
