    I agree, We are agricultural community, but that is no reason to let hog processing set up so close to town. Put it out in the country where it belongs. Let it go down by Procter & Gamble. Not in our community!

    New York City!!! Get a rope. Slaughtering two thousand pigs a day is not “agriculture” I’m not sure what it is, but I don’t even know of a pig farmer around hear who raises two thousand pigs a year let alone; what? 520,000 a year for slaughter. Box Elder County agriculture for me is dairy farms, corn, wheat, hay, and sod, all these “DNA” references are the absolute worst type of rhetoric. If you people with out a sense of smell or common sense want to live near a pig slaughtering facility on the scale of this one; then by all means move to Modesto. The people got it right at this meeting. In West Corinne sure, in Howell why not, but in the middle of Tremonton and Garland are you kidding me?

    Tremonton is a town that was built on the backs of folks who like to eat breakfast!!! Hence the reason we brought in Malt-O-Meal!:)
    Equating this industrial slaughterhouse with agriculture is a ridiculous notion!
    If we need a slaughterhouse because we are an agricultural community, then why don’t we get an automobile factory because we are a car driving people? Or an electrical transformer factory because we are an electricity using community? Or a textile factory because we are a clothes wearing society?!?
    Sorry, I don’t mean to be facetious, but relating the slaughterhouse to farming has GOT TO STOP!

    This cracks me up.. In our community NO.. but in Corrine or Howell YES.. its ok. I live in Howell so I say bring it on heck ATK. Is available..It just kills me people are ok with something when its out of sight out of mind. I am all about the plant coming for employment.I dont care that its next door to me. But than again I am from Howell and apparently we are not a community. I live and breathe stinky air..so it really could not be any worst..other Maybe since it’s always windy here Tremonton will get the smell.. 😉

    This is a great oppertunity this community is passing up. Not only will it bring jobs but it will bring money to the community.. millions of dollars this community is passing up because of a smell or because they dont want their children to work at a place like that. I guess its ok if the goverment spends $50 million a year to buy meat from a slaughter house to feed their kids school lunch.. You don’t have to apply, just because a company comes to a certain location does not mean you have to work there. Other people would love a job.. People need to be more open minded. The council sent people to inspect the business and they came back and said it was much better than they expected no smell.. They are not going to harvest or stall the pigs at the facility. Seriously people please reconsider if you only knew what this could do for us. We already lost Cabellas a few years ago. What else do we have to loose.? There is this company called U.S.D.A they do inspections for companies like that, not just for cleanliness or inhumane reasons but for smell also..

    And also you can google if a slaughter house has brought down value of a home in the area it will say NO. Most of the time it brings value up. Because there is employment in that area..
