Subject: RE: Will a new beef processing plant help local price?

Northeast Iowa
Upper Iowa Beef in Lime Springs Pretty much the whole beef portion of the meat case at Ye Old Butcher Shoppe in Rochester was full of Upper Iowa Beef product last year when I was there. Two guys at the counter said they'd had good experience with it. See their delivery truck on the road at various locations.

Their grid got a bit more aggressive (realistic) last year compared to previous years, but it's still based off an Iowa Interior Top type price, not an active bid-the-base type grid. They will take some color. Here's the details on what works.

Getting data back is hit and miss, which is exactly what I would expect from one person in particular. Some things never change.

They ran for about 3-4 months as Lime Springs Beef in 2015 and then reopened as Upper Iowa Beef in 2016. Not entirely sure if the original investors still own a smaller percentage of it or nothing at all of the new organization. They buy some cattle at the sale barns, too. They'll take delivery of anything from a couple head to semis.
