Visit by the meat trade expert in China , Richard Herzfelder

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.
