Re: [RC] What's she worth - steelsidedown

Cavel is still up and running, for the time being, lots of legal wrangling.  TX has a delegate (?) fighting viciously to allow the plants there to re-open.
The ban, as I understand it, was to stop slaughter for human consumption -- not pet food.  Obviously, human food has a higher value. 
There is a lot of internet buzz in reference to the shippers going to Canada.  I don't understand quite how though?  Its a pain getting thru that border with one horse, how would you take a trailer load.. I'm sure at least 25 head??  I can believe Mexico would be easier....

 I do not believe that is passed in all states, but if I am wrong, then the horses will be shipped to Mexico and Canada.

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