National Beef Packing Co., the nation’s fourth largest beef processing company, said it is planning to cutback its production schedule to five days per week from six in its beef processing facilities, beginning this week.
The cutbacks will reduce slaughter by approximately 15,000 head per week, and affect operations at its Liberal and Dodge City, Kan., facilities, as well as its Brawley, Calif., facility.
The majority of ownership in the Kansas City, Mo.-based National Beef is held by beef producers with sales exceeding $5.5 billion annually. The company processes and markets fresh beef, case-ready beef and beef by-products for domestic and international markets.
