After the conference he gave at Melilla Expo organized by the Hereford Breeders Society, LATU and El País, Mr. Herzfelder visited BPU plant in Durazno.

Richard Herzfelder Comments on BPU:
The plant is a model of a modern abattoir, from the cattle pens all the way through to the shipping bay. Especially I was impressed by the use of technology to manage the lines,

Maintain traceability, and also as a tool to give feedback to and maintain credibility with ranchers by giving good weight. I think it is a model that many Chinese Slaughterhouses Could learn from in order to develop their meat industry.
