Premium Standard Farms Ruling

The State has filed a "Memorandum in Opposition" to PSF's court-filed plan to comply with environmental requests from a court-appointed panel. The good news: in the memo the Missouri attorney general says it will not take any action against the North Missouri corporate hog giant before September 1st. An attorney with PSF says the A-G's memo contains several factual misstatements and what he calls "Misleading Characterizations" of the facts. The attorney general's office is suggesting to the courts sanctions be put in place, a move the company says makes no sense. PSF says it's spent more than 40 million dollars to comply with regulations during the past several years and adds that amount has seriously jeopardized jobs and threatens the company's existence. PSF is responsible for millions of dollars in tax support to governments throughout North Missouri, where it has multiple hog operations.
