Pork processor Seaboard Foods is seeking a delay to a federal court decision that would force it to slow the speed of its pork slaughter plant in Guymon, Okla. The decision reverses a Trump Administration had followed a policy that allowed pork plants to run slaughter lines as fast as they wanted as long as they prevent fecal contamination and minimize bacteria, Reuters reports.
Seaboard is looking for a 10-1/2 month delay on the slow-down. Reuters states that the processor sped up its facility last year. “Without a stay of the judgment for 10.5 months, Seaboard faces the loss of thousands upon thousands of animals without compensation,” Seaboard said in filings.
