A history of tradition, from pasture to plate.
Jerome County counts several thousand head of beef cattle, including large herds that graze on public lands during the summer and winter, as well as smaller farm herds. Idaho beef producers view cattle and the land they graze on as both their livelihood and a legacy for future generations.
This history, as well as access to a qualified workforce and strong agricultural ties, is what attracted True West to the area in 2020. This plant will usher in a new era of cooperative production with the area’s cattle ranchers and is expected to secure the area’s legacy of ranching for a new generation.
