Re: [RC] What's she worth - Dot Wiggins

I think the plants in Mexico and Canada are still open.
I bet the buyers are smiling all the way to the bank. No reason the prices of the finished product ready for sale over seas is any less than ever, just the cost here. Since there is no competition they can buy for nothing.
Another one of the unintended consquences of a poorly thought out law.

One advantage might be that you can find a pretty nice horse in the shipper's pens cheap. I just heard of someone selling a number of nice registered horses for $25 because of the hay prices and no market to put a floor price under the average horse.

>. One buyer bought 70 horses. You KNOW where they're going. Just
makes my stomach hurt to think about broke horses going for meat.

I was under the impression that all the slaughter houses are closed. What's the story here?
