New Mexico public meeting to address horse slaughter permit 

Chaves County Courthouse

ROSWELL — The public can soon weigh in on whether or not the state should give a horse slaughterhouse a permit it needs to open.

New Mexico Horse Slaughter Valley Meat Company tried to open the slaughterhouse in Chaves County last month, but a district court judge in Albuquerque granted a temporary injunction to stop the plant from opening.

While the legal battle continues, Valley Meat is still trying to obtain a groundwater discharge permit.

The environment department will hold a public hearing on the permit at the Chaves County Courthouse on Tuesday, October 22 at 5 p.m. The courthouse is located at 400 N. Virginia Avenue in Roswell.
