Return of Humane and Regulated Horse Processing is Welcome News

The majority of the overall equine industry and the horse people of America are celebrating today the announcement that the option of humane and responsible horse processing under federal oversight has finally been granted. Valley Meats of Roswell, New Mexico, announced today that they have received the necessary USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) grant of inspection.

“The U.S. horse industry owes a huge debt of gratitude to Valley Meats and the De Los Santos family,” says Sue Wallis, Wyoming State Representative and U.S. Chairman of the International Equine Business Association, “without their determination and courage to stand up to vicious abuse from animal activist groups led by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) the entire horse world would be facing the continued devastation of the horse market, horrific environmental degradation of rangelands due to the absence of a humane option for excess horses, the unacceptable decline in overall horse welfare as the result of radical action that deprives otherwise unwanted and unneeded horses of their intrinsic worth…not to mention depriving the rich, cultural and traditional use of horse meat in the cuisines of ethnic groups, and health and value conscious consumers both here and abroad.”

Wallis goes on to say that “for the majority of people who are in the horse business, who actually make some part of their living by raising, training, or otherwise using horses for the benefit of themselves, their families, and communities, this welcome news is long in coming. Finally, we can look forward to a positive outcome where every horse has value, is treated humanely from birth to death. When their highest, best use is to be turned into food for a very willing and eager market, horse people generally agree that is best accomplished in small state-of-the-art facilities, such as Valley Meats, that are designed for the purpose, manned by trained professionals, under the watchful and rigorous inspection of the USDA – Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) for both food safety and humane handling. IEBA members have instituted systems that go far beyond FSIS requirements to ensure that no contaminated cheval (horse meat) ever enters the food system, and that all horses are treated right at every point. ”

  • Sue Wallis is an evil, vile person. Her statements are nothing more than warped propaganda. She is NOT concerned with human health or animal welfare. Her “positive outcome” translates to dollars. Let’s examine Valley Meats and the De Los Santos family and follow the money trail.

      These butchers call their murderous actions toward horses “processing” as if horses are things rather than the beautiful, living souls they really are.

      Wallis said it herself of her ilk, “… people who are … USING horses to benefit themselves …”

    Oh my god so Sue Wallis is so willing to kill people by processing toxic horse meat and mixing into our beef and other processed food. Time for me to start buying my beef on the hoof and having it processed in my home town. Don’t trust people like Mrs. Wallis not to take a deal under the table to make more money off of animals we don’t and will not eat in the USA. The EU will not touch the toxic horse meat from the USA so where is this meat going to go who is this meat gone to poison?

    You people are in never-never land if you think horse slaughter is not abuse to these animals. You lie to your selves. You have caused the animals to be stock piled in jails for years, your just trying to get rid of your mistakes. How horrible, how do you sleep at night? Or do you?

    OMG, I am most certainly going to throw up I had to skim off the end cause it was making me VOMIT, ALL OF IT LIES, NOW SHE SPEAKS, WELL, all I can say it ain’t over till it’s over and it is FAR from a done deal as far as I am concerned… It really is so sad that we have opportunists like her in this world, that’s ok she will get her justice in the end from God himself, and gosh if there is another life she just might be heading for slaughter wouldn’t that be fitting?? I am NOT giving up hope!! 🙂

    The IEBA has been marketing their plans to sell horse meat inside the US. A survey posting on their web site shows that they mean to poison the American people even knowing that the UK will no longer import American breed horses for human consumption because of toxic drug residue found in test samples.

    The link to the survey is http://ieqbassn.com/survey/

    Your full shit & lies Sue Wallis – everyone knows that 80% of WE-THE-PEOPLE oppose horse slaughter and don’t count your chickens before your eggs hatch – you’ve got a ways to go before you and your butt buddies can legally slaughter horses and we’ll see to it that that never happens.

    Sue Wallis you have a Nazi mentality. I suppose the solution to neglected and unwanted humans is to slaughter them too, as you support a holocaust belief system. You are a woman devoid of a soul and I pity you on the judgment day…

    Processing, what are you kidding?????!!!!!!!
    Horses are a Majestic, Beautiful Animal, to be riding on, to race, and to have as a companion, Exc:! Next thing you know we will be processing Dogs.. Horses are not, a part of our Food Chain……If we didn’t have horses before the Automobile, how would we have survived???????? But now, that we don’t rely on them for everything like we did before, they are disposable?????????
    I don’t think so, oh, if Robots take over, people won’t be needed anymore, will we be next??????????????????? You people make me sick!!!!!!! If, I had the place & money, I would help keep these horses, but, I don’t. Leave them alone and let them live, like the Indians, they were here first!!!!!! We have Pigs, Cattle, Chicken, Sheep, Goats, Frogs,
    Alligator, Deer and more!!
