Hawaii....from the information I gleaned not ONE beast is finished on the islands,except maybe for private use, certainly not commercially. All are shipped live to be finished on mainland USA. Is there a shortage of grass? NO!
The animals are not huge beasts, could easily be finished, slaughtered and packed to be sold locally....far too simple a concept.....no slaughterhouses left, no packing.....bugger all regarding local meat production, only livestock....few jobs. Island life and big business....the same the world over. Money and very few jobs.....big corporations have already taken over and to be honest I think we have already lost for ever our small producers.
Depressed with the state of the world...
